Scope and Contents

In the first letter Kloss expresses her gratitude for the copper plates she received from Kroll. She briefly mentions her improving health and also describes in detail the layour of their first adobe house in Taos and their lack of running water.
Scope and Contents In the second letter Kloss mentions the Collegium, their mutual friend Ralph Meyers, the copperplates that Kroll has sent her, an inscribed book that she mailed to Kroll, and also that she has been sending etchings to several galleries.
Scope and Contents In the third letter, Kloss discusses her health and the need to rest more frequently as she ages. She notes how "frightfully" busy Taos is that summer and how much it has changed with ugly buildings and the "Indians losing their old ideas." She also discusses the three media she works in -- oil, watercolor, and etching-- and how she no longer has the strength for all three at once. She ends the letter saying, "I pity artists whose unworthy goals of prestige are so hollow."
