In this warm, detailed letter, signed "Jerry" to Herbert Mayes, editor of "Good Housekeeping" and "Cosmopolitan," Weidman discusses his latest work and living situation. In part: "...I had just read the advance galleys of Steve Birmingham's forthcoming biography of John Marquand, and at one point he says that Marquand said 'Herbert Mayes was the best editor I ever worked with.' I was irked. That was exactly what I had told Marquand. Anyway, it's true...I will send you and Grace a copy of 'Tiffany Street' as soon as they come off the press..."
