Dear John-- 1
Here are the papers with, I hope, the signatures in the proper places.
I am hopeful that there'll be a play. If there isn't it will be because it takes more courage to write each succeeding play than the one preceding needed, and maybe there isn't sufficient heart for it.
But I'll try. Best to you--and those you see about.

Dear Lela-- 1
It's always good to hear from you--though I usually have the feeling of not deserving it. I'm not a good correspondent, largely because I have to write for a living--and so writing gets to be a chore.
