Summary
The papers contain the manuscripts of "Fast and loose," 1876, and several poems including, "Here's a paean to Jan," "If you were dead," "Oct. 12, 1927," "To a gentleman," "Mould and vase," and "The tryst," as well as a commonplace book, 1900, and a notebook, 1915, on travels across the French battlefields. There is also an electrostatic copy of the "Fast and loose" manuscript with editorial markings for publication by Viola Winner.
Much of her correspondence consists of brief thank-yous and other social notes. Other letters discuss a proposed essay on Italian gardens, war relief work in France and Belgium, and serial publications, corrections and payments for her work. She replies several times to admirers, reminisces briefly, and mentions efforts to obtain the Nobel Prize for Henry James.
With the collection is a group of papers regarding the 1977 University Press of Virginia publication of "Fast and loose" edited by Viola Hopkins Winner containing a typesetter's copy and galley proof of the novelette.
Correspondents include Henry Seidel Canby, William Morton Fullerton, Richard Watson Gilder, Robert Underwood Johnson, Rutger Bleeker Jewett, Walter Maynard, Silas Weir Mitchell, Anna Robinson, Pauline Robinson, and Daniel Berkeley Updike.
