driven to taking Whitney's offer and doing the play with another director and someone else for Bothwell.
I haven't heard from you since you went to Warrensburg, so perhaps you're busy too. 9 No doubt there are a lot of things for you to catch up with. Or perhaps the part is not what you hoped. I won't have a car when I first get east, so can't drive out to see you at once. Also whatever I am to settle about the production will have to be done soon. No doubt the train is the best way to go to see you anyway if the distance amounts to six hours.
Your wire just came--giving your telephone number. I'll wire you tonight and make a date for a call tomorrow night. It's a relief to hear from you, darling--I was wondering if you'd forgotten me already. --Tomorrow I must settle down to rewriting the central part of the picture--quite a long and arduous job. Then on the train--I must do some work on that play of Alec's. But if I can get some money from him for it it will help, for I find I'll have little enough after paying income tax to get along on. Perhaps R.K.O. will buy Taos. But they were to call me yesterday if they wanted it, and they didn't call. Today I wrote the review of Harvey Fergusson's book--Rio Grande. 10
I'm also worried about doing the play myself, but when you hear the ins and outs of the business it seems nobody cares much what happens to me or my play except myself. --It's nice you have a good part.
The Lapworths are waiting for me to go to Hollywood with them--we're to have supper at the Hofbräu and get some beer. It's been terribly hot here. Love to you, darling, and may I see you soon--the nights are long and wakeful without you.
