Example text

You could try Box 311, Decatur, Georgia, from which I suppose it would be forwarded. Stern Papers, Regenstein Library, 56:2; TS. Monday [November 1947] | [Evansville IN] Dear Don & Jean, Have just read your letter and I won’t tell you how much it meant hearing from you. If the return address is surprising to you it is still bewildering to me. I am the asst. mgr. of a dept. store specializing in women’s wear. I make $35 a wk. reduced by the Int. Rev. Bureau to $29. On this I live. I am in a room with some people called Metcalfe.

I simply refuse to accept inwardly (where I hope it counts) any of the responsibility for Their doings. Jean and I are even thinking, rather foolishly and haphazardly I suppose, of a farm somewhere with bomb cellars. We wish you as much luck as we wish ourselves. Thanks so much for what you thought of my poem. And for your own version, which Jean and I have been puzzling over. I am sure of my admiration for the line, “The clam is its own dark and its own calm,” or however it goes, as well as for a couple of other effects.

If getting married would keep me out of the draft I would seriously consider it. Fine about Stanford. Winters will soon be having a change of heart or maybe an expansion. Or have you? Again, you are expected in NY and incidentally if I’m not there you will still use the apartment. Dick Private MS. April 3, 1948 | Miami Dear Dick, Nothing I could possibly say about what Edgar calls the mad world would be anything but corny. I simply refuse to accept inwardly (where I hope it counts) any of the responsibility for Their doings.
