I never, knowingly, disposed of second serial rights4, but perhaps it would be as well to have someone telephone about to the different magazine offices. Here is the information a as to where they appeared:

"The Diamond Mine5," "Paul's Case6," and "The Sculptor's Funeral7" all three appeared in McClure's8; "A Wagner Matinee9" in Everybodys10; "A Death in the Desert11" in Scribner's12; "A Gold Slipper13" in Harper's Monthly14; "Scandal15" in the Century16; "Coming Aphrodite17" in the Smart Set18.


Please do not forget to send me a copy of Walter Arnesburg's19 "Dante"20, and please give the enclosed memo. to Mr Spier21.

Faithfully yours Willa Cather
