Weather: rain mixed with some snow here today, so even if you don’t get to swim down there the weather is bound to be an improvement over what we are having. But I do hope, for all your sakes, that it’s glorious and that you’re having a lovely time.
Business: I know that you don’t want any further delays on WHO SPEAKS, so I am enclosing a jacket proof together with an envelope for its return. Nan and I have proofread this (aloud), and the marks—with the exception of the grease pencil—are Nan’s. We checked the RPW quotes against pages and the word settings is used there rather than the word backgrounds. When the jackets arrived I showed one to Jim Silberman, as I thought he had previously seen it. He said he hadn’t, but that he liked it except for the lettering of RPW’s name on the back ad.
If the four envelopes from Irving Trust, Morgan and Lincoln Rochester don’t require any immediate attention, just enclose them in the envelope I’m sending for the jackets return.
I thought you would like to have the latest news of McCarthy’s doings.
So far, all is well here. Roberta and I are both healthy, and we send our best to all the Erskine’s.
