Dear Dave 2/27/72 Sun. I finally finished Madelaines [?] ring & found an ivory case for it. I wrapped your valentine up with the ring and Jason [?] & Dick's [?] valentine. The postmistress told me to re-wrap the package. Anyway, my house burned down to the ground at 4:00 in the morning The cats woke Miles and he woke me up. Both of us were naked, and so it went. The only thing we found were our keys and cats. Evidently the gas wall heater leaked into the walls & we barely got out. The house burned to the ground [?] in ten minutes after we left. What's going on? I keep wondering & wondering. We're alright tho, worshiping our cats. Looking for a place; trying to get it together for Houston. Please tell Madelaine. I'm too, I don't know what to write. And I'm so sad about her ring. All my jewels & stuff was destroyed. Love Ellen

Dear Mark I would love to see you; bring a portfolio of your GREATEST WORKS. Telephone number in Danville ([redacted]. Anytime. You can always teach some of my classes, although you might find them different from those in a private girls school. If you need a good book to buy (for yourself) get J. [John] Szarkowski's LOOKING AT PHOTOGRAPHS (Museum of Modern Art). Tom Besides which, we can go to the local (San Francisco—Berkeley) exhibitions of photography. This is a good month for same.

Dear Bonnie—Glad to hear teaching suits you—I sure didn't have such a good response at first. Thanks for the swell card. It's displayed prominently. I've lately gotten acquisitive & am collecting photo PC's like an anteater collects ants: "slurp!" I think it's a phase. But fun. Pressing less hard in the teaching, enjoying it more. If I wuz rich we'd all have a weekend in someplace like this pitcher. Love, Dave
