Description: 38 lines, 1 sheet, small 8vo, written on both sides of the page. Key West, 14 March, 1981. Chatty letter, written to Moss who was convalescing from a hospital stay. He describes in some detail the "unusual degree of social frenzy this year", hopes that Moss will have the patience and blitheness not to worry about the New Yorker until (he's) fully mended", advises that he will be flying to Oregon and "shall probably get a cold" that the translation of Andromache is 300 lines from the end, and ends with a riddle from John Ciardi "which goes: what lies on the ocean floor and twitches?...." Fine.

It was quite a moving moment when I actually set eyes on the letters this morning! Thank you very much - doing business with you was an uncommercial pleasure. Kind regards - Benno
