Dated June 1925, with the letterhead of La Estancia Saratoga (her Saratoga, California estate). The missive is in response to a letter the author received regarding ideas for World Peace. "Kathleen Norris (1880-1966) , the 20th century's most popular writer for women. Kathleen and her husband Charles (also a well known author) lived in Saratoga on 200 acres on Big Basin Road in 1919. The summer estate was called La Estancia. Norris penned 88 novels, magazine articles and newspaper articles between 1911 and 1959. Her first novel, Mother, was printed in the American Magazine and so touched Theodore Roosevelt that he climbed six flights of stairs to the Norris apartment to shake the author’s hand. In the 1930’s Norris joined a rally for world disarmament. She was an ardent feminist supporting women’s rights, opposed capital punishment and worked to outlaw nuclear weapons. “Family Gathering” was considered to be her informal autobiography.
