- Note Relating to Cather
- Cather quotes a fragment of Lucile as a toast to explorer Fridtjof Nansen by Samuel Haraden Church, and describes the quotation as "one of the worst he could have selected, too." The quotation reads: "Not a truth has to art or to science been given,/But brows have ached for it and souls toiled and striven;/And many have striven, and many have failed,/And many died, slain by the truth they assailed."
