Included is a letter from Augustin Daly (?) to Gilder (1879 Feb. 5), asking her to attend his talk about the stage, even if she has heard it before, as he will try to say something new. Horace Howard Furness writes her (1883 Feb. 6), declining to review or write for The Critic but suggesting that Gilder approach his sister, Mrs. A.L. Wister, to do so.
The collection also contains 1 letter from Gilder to Mr. Bouton (?), 1884 Aug. 26), informing him of a special issue of The Critic soon to be published, assuring him that "it is a number you want to be represented in." Gilder replies (1897 May 28) to Mr. Estes's request for a frank opinion of an actress's performance, giving many reasons why she does "not have any hope for Miss Rowland on the stage."
Also included is a letter from Frances Folsom Cleveland to Gilder (1900 Jan. 5), commenting on Grover Cleveland's health, and promising to send photographs of them both. 1 letter from actress Kate Field to Gilder (undated), quotes several favorable reviews of her portrayal of Laura Hawkins and gives Gilder permission to use them.
Completing the collection is a sepia print of Field with the accompanying inscription written on Lilian Whiting's business card: "Kate Field at fourteen, from an oil painting. With ever faithful regards to Miss Gilder."
