At the suggestion of my English publisher3, I have decided to write a short critical study of Miss Jewett4's work within the next year or two. This, of course, would in no way interfere with your projected study, but I do not see that either of us will gain by crossing wires. Miss Mary Jewett5 and Dr. Eastman6 are the people to approach for material, I think, or Mr. Greenslet7 of Houghton Mifflin. I feel sure that Miss Mary Jewett would rather furnish information concerning her sister's life than have me do it. Anything that I write myself about Miss Jewett is always given to her sister Mary for criticism and suggestions.Very sincerely yours, Willa Cather
