1st Edition. Signed by Author. Miller, Henry. [Evie Miller]. Two page Als from Evie [Miller] Big Sur 5-6-65. "Dear Henry / before business, I must tell you about a fascinating dream I had about you last night. It was so vivid & exciting, it woke me up at 2 a.m. and I had to read an hour or so after jotting it down so I wouldn't let it slip entirely. / A house somewhere, and you wanted me to see the kitchen, which you yourself had either decorated or painted. (The whole dream was a series of paintings really.) the kitchen was a fantastic abstract painting - high ceiling, with open cabinets containing supermarket quantities of canned goods - arranged in abstract form as to color, etc [not pop art-!] Blobs of luscious reds, obviously tomatoes, plums, crab-apples, etc. . . I turned and looked up , and there were 5 or 6 8' watercolors - all in rich pastel colors - all of the streets, tall apartments, city scenes - Paris, New York, that feeling - . . . Many self portraits - all heads - . . . Marvelous all of them! . . / Much love / Evie". In fine condition.
