Collection contains the last page of her short story "Marigold-Michel" published in The Atlantic Monthly, volume 79, March 1897, together with handwritten title pages to "Marigold-Michel" and "The open door." A letter to a Miss Jacobsen, 1878 December, sends a requested autograph and notes that her "young girl friends" delight and encourage her and are "truer critics" than professionals. In a letter to James R. Osgood & Co., Howard discusses payment for "Guenn," the illustrations, and her copies. A reference to Mr. Simmons may refer to Edward Simmons on whom the character of Everett Hamor was based.
