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.

Howdy and Happy Fourth of July. Just want to let you know that the Dick Grace book came. A nice copy, as promised. Grace was quite a fellow: the only person I ever heard of who crashed planes for a living and died of old age. I was in The Argosy once, years ago, 1997 or so. Hope to get in again one of these days, but NYC is a long way from here. Thanks again for helping me out with this. Best - Bob H.
