" Dear Henry / Had your last letter a few days ago, it's the shortest you ever wrote to me - just two sentences which, with a semi-colon in lieu of a full stop, could have been reduced to one. / But your handwriting seems still as steady and vigorous as ever. Your handwriting only, I'm afraid, but then you can't be a near-nonagenarian with impunity. And I'm fast catching up with you, at least insofar as the punishment is concerned. My daily consumption of all sorts of pills for survival is on the increase" "Betty Ryan agrees with you that Jay Martin is a louse. . . / Needless to say I'm extremely curious about your forthcoming opus on "Joey." Can't imagine that you can say anything new about me that you haven't said already before" Perles goes on to talk about Wells turning into a tourist attraction. . . / signed "Fred" Great letter in very good condition a couple of chips from opening.
