Paula Crane and Ted Thomas to Paul Briggs

Dear Paul, Have eaten our way through Manhattan and will leave for Long Island today. We've walked a lot and seen a lot and loved it, but remain confirmed Westerners. Hicks to the bone! See you in a few days. Love Paula & Ted

Dear Kenda—So far haven't seen your 20x24's (or for that matter, haven't seen Marky) since you left. But I'm sure they preserve your reputation. Was TERRIBLE [sic] disappointed not to see you @ SPE, as I'm sure were Ellen [Manchester], Andrea [Jennison], Mark [Klett] & the rest of the sick crew. It was a blast. Although more sedate than I'd imagined. Probably due to your own absence. I'm finally building a darkroom & ecstatic. Best to J.P. xxx Stone

8/12 Hi Mark & Robbi, I'm in Montana, on the Gallatin River, on my way to Yellowstone. Finished a bike tour (no, not the Harley to Sturgis, my pedal-type bike) last week—from Helena to Billings via Yellowstone. Much fun. Back to Yellowstone to see if I can make pictures of campers & such. We'll see. Enjoyed seeing Haynes' photos today in Helena. I'm on to Idaho next. Then San Fran, but back to Denver after that—think I'll try to get to LA in winter. Hey—Jennifer and I are getting married (gulp!) December 29. Come on out & do some skiing & join us! Hee Hee, what fun! Ken

22 August 1977 San Diego hazy/sunny and oceanish Dearest little "Kendle" Missed by only a few days when we stayed with lovely Eric [Renner] and Laurie. It was HARD to leave New Mexico. Feels good to settle in a bit with my sister & family after plenty 5 days of roadside Americana. Jeff [Fuller] did all the driving. Enjoying the stranger foliage, ocean, palms, west coast [illegible] and Balboa Park. So far I "hate" L.A. after only 1/2 day there. Headed north to see THE REDWOODS and I CAN'T WAIT. Also San Francisco. Home the 29th. Love, M. When will you be "home" Nice to see the ocean Hello Ellen [Manchester] Mark [Klett] JoAnne [Verberg] Alden [Spillman]

11.26-Sat Eve Barbara—We had a great week here... Great people, places, tons of food. Richard Niel got us from the airport Mon. eve, took us downtown for dinner and w/in 15 min. his car was burgled—lost all my luggage and Leica. Moan. BC and Debo served a fab dinner at their "new" cabin—right on the water, w/ a full gale blowing and no electricity. Quite a party. Great place but it hasn't stopped raining. Miss you Love Kenda
