Kenda, Greetings from the space-time continuum! Luck would have it that I got an assistantship at Sun Valley. Peter de Lory, Marsha & Mike Burns, [Alex] Streetman to name a few. Their [sic] taking good care of me here so it looks good to be a great summer. Hope yours is a hot one too. Love, Tom

23/or is it 4/August; Good morning, Kenda/honey; I must say I awoke this morning thinking of you. Camped as we did last night near Manistique, fantasies of a young women [sic] sailing about these shores: I'm also reading "Another Roadside Attraction" which probably accounts for the tone of my writing. Between cards & camping, taking/or is it making pictures and yesterday swimming in Lake Superior; today Michigan tomorrow Huron. It's getting warmer Love Roger

Dear Kenda, Well we're settled in finally, though there seems like so much to do. Ellen's [Manchester] working even harder than in Breck[enridge]. I'm teaching and doing a little of my own work while also finishing up some survey stuff. Went to Yellowstone and had a great time. Jo Ann [Verburg?] says you put in some time on the BIG camera. Good! Hope everything's OK in Colo—I miss it. Best to all. Love Mark

Hello Kenda, Leaving Colo was pretty hard. but its [sic] good to be home and back to work. I mentioned to John when he came back to see me that I was interested in getting a photo of yours. Either to buy or I would very much enjoy doing a trade if your [sic] up for it. I could send you some slides or whatever. However you can handle it. Hope all is going well at Breckenridge. Please give my best to Ellen [Manchester]. Yours.. Jamie [address redacted]

Dear Kenda, The glossy folded form sent out about SPE includes a cut-out coupon for reservations and food. Martha & I thought we'd skip the meals. So just send in the form requesting a twin with us roommates. I suggested that participants not pay the $12 registration fee. That's too much! Candida

Hi—Guess Steve and I are living here now—we've got a band together that could be the best one any of us have ever been in. It's hot, there are thunder-storms every few days, there's a preponderance of the color green and you can virtually watch the corn grow. Exciting, eh? Actually, it IS—everyone seems friendly and slightly outrageous. How are the seminars going? Love, Alex

B—Wednesday No doubt that making judgements [sic] with only half the story is both quick & easy but I would have to question the validity... The kind Mr. Goodfellow was a case of total disorganization—he wanted some 25 hours (plus) of work! I did 80 prints & sold 3!! He told me to be there Monday "between 10:30 & 11:00 p.m." I got there @ 10:15 & the place was EMPTY!!! I'm sorry but I'm not disappointed. Yet. I'll arrange to return everything immediately.

Oct 17 Dearest Barbara... the show is UP!!) and caused a mild sensation. Somebody who says she doesn't have a "red hot" budget wants to buy one... How much are they? Also Tom Steiger told me to tell you that he is REALLY impressed. I tried to call you last night.. but couldn't get your phone number—let me know about the space so I'll know how to present the pinholes—Is it enclosed? More soon—Love Ruth.

Barb—thanks again for your help. Got photos back—will be/able to use some. You should get little flash unit like mine—worked well w/ wide angle lens. Finished shooting—for now. Did Willie Dixon yesterday. Went SMOOTHLY. He's nice man. Shot at her home & rehearsal. Some problems but went well. Took footage to lab today—will see results tomorrow. Haven't seen Jay [DiLorenzo]—is he here!? Koko [Taylor] was cancelled for concert out there I think. She's in Calif now then on to Europe in Oct. How is my camera? Will it cost much to repair? Let me know when we make the exchange. I plan to call Lynne [Brown] when I've progressed on editing. XXO PHS

Northlight Galley. So I feel a bit more confident about grad. school. I also know most schools have e a Feb. deadline for Fall semester. So I wonder if schools will accept me for Winter 1979 session. Also I still need to talk to you about schools—Tucson is a probable place, now I may even consider California. I really want to go to a good place. I took all my shit out of school locker so I hope I can do some stuff there when I get back. I have $100 worth of P-R 16x20 waiting at Ossen's. I'm real excited. I've been reading Phil Davis' [?] book every day to keep up a bit. I'm also entering topless dancing contests at discos to get $ for my trip. I hope you're getting a lot done & LOVING IT. I can't wait to see what you're doping. Also thanks for all the help you've given me. You are a good influence So I'll write you from Mex & see you sometime in February. [scratchout] any romancing?? See you soon. Love, MARCIA

Ciao bella—come va? We are enjoying Loescher and group and miss you. Don't know when we'll see you, but maybe you should reconsider coming to bella Roma.
