"The following history was first published in serial form in McClure's Magazine, 1907-1908. It has since been revised and new material has been added."--Page [v].
"It will probably never be possible to determine exactly which passages are primarily the work of Miss Cather, those which remain substantially the work of Mrs. Milmine, or even those portions which are the work of other editorial writers in the New York Offices of McClure's."
