If Mexico is so great—and it is—why do I still feel like the frontispiece? Ans: because I am insane! Love S.

Dear Bette— I am just beyond the margin, left. Where the blue givesout. Beautiful here. <br>Peace. In my briefcase, a telephone billfrom Chicago with $59.00 in Puerto Rican calls. <br>Hope is was worth it (I sh’d talk)<br&a

Ever Your Friend

Here I made the stretcher-bearer stop and set me down for a minute. <br>As I was en route to the boneyard to have my bones appraised. Love S.

Am finishing up at last. <br>All you might wish me—good + bad—I have had<br>But it hasn’t much affected the moon.

Ever Your Friend

Dear Bette— At dusk, at dawn, you don’t answer your phone, so I assume you are busy and will <br>not much mind if I have myself adopted by the Indians. They need 1 whitehaired redskin. Ever yr friend, S

As an old gladiator, I naturally choose this site. <br>No more lions, though, only pussycats + their litters—hundreds of little Roman cats. <br>Peltz arrived today

Ever Your Friend

Dear Pal— When I get back to Chicago July 22, how will I find you? A most important question. <br>You can leave word with the Comm. on Social Thought. All these Jews remind me of you.<br> I miss you. Love, Saul

Ever Your Friend

Dear Bette— Last stop. But I could stay here, climbing mountains. <br>As a natural obstacle overcomer I could satisfy my character-needs. <br>Anyway I have much in common with rocks. Love Saul

Ever Your Friend

Everybody has his own way of committing suicide. <br>Having discovered my own way, I shall now refrain. I am ready to go straight. <br>Your reformed friend, Saul

Ever Your Friend

Dear Bette—To reach you by phone is impos. I have to travel this week; in case you try to reach me. <br>I wind up in Iowa on Sunday, and then I’m back to stay. How was Frank’s visit?<br> Keep well, Saul

Ever Your Friend

Peltz is out-Peltzed here. Chicago is out-Chicagoed by Tokyo. <br>Three times bigger, crimeless, stinkier, jollier, and kinkier. As for me,I go on scribbling and talking. <br>My paradise will be musical and wordless. Love, S.

Bellow bought Howland a one-way flight from San Francisco to Chicago, insuring the trip with the Fidelity and Casualty Company of New York. “That old lottery-feeling,” he writes on the envelope’s reverse.
