Ellen Manchester to Barbara Houghton

Dear Barbara—Seems like years since I've talked to you or seen you. I've been "on the road" since end of October—Oregon, S. F, L. A. and Tempe. Now home in N.H. for month of Dec. Am teaching at S. F. Art Institute Jan 18-May should be fun! Have great place to live on the ocean—you MUST come visit! After that, I don't know what I'll be doing. Wish I could stay in Sun Valley, but don't know if it's smart. Have a wonderful Christmas! Love, Ellen

Jim Stone to Barbara Houghton

Dear Miz B—It's a great pleasure to have Xmas roll around once a year so I can find out what's happening to all my friends who get too busy to write. Glad you are well & it sounds like in love. Maybe I'll get to see you in Philly. Stone is mainly writing, trying to get view camera book finished and go back to making pix. I do sneak off into the darkroom on occasion though. All well & happy here. Look forward to seeing you. xxx Stone

July 14 The wedding was fantastic—we all had a great time, no tension, no fights—sunny New England day, wild preacher, lots of beer and swimming. Headin' West now, Corn Palace was CRAZY—you've been here I think. Badlands today, on to Wyoming, Mont., Idaho, Denver around Aug 3, see you then [we'll probably stay with Nancy and Doug]—ready for blast on Aug 6 in Breckenridge. Hope you had a great time at Kenda's [North]. Love, Ellen, Bob and Sophie

Barbara—Happy New Year! I sent the slides 'n stuff yesterday. Sent 7 from the portrait series (beach hat)—I haven't taken slides lately of my newer vinyl pieces—with stuff added. Actually, maybe I should include a couple. What do you think? I'll be taking slides next week, ya, maybe we should both include some—whatever is best to blow his mind, rite? So why don't you hold those & I'll mail you a few more. Love Jude P.S. What about the 3M pieces? They actually start as [illegible] photos—that aspect is necessary. Sometimes it's hard for me to judge my own work in terms of strength. SIGN the litho you hand color

June 18—Barbara—Started a Cecil B. DeMille super colossal "CONGRATULATIONS" piece—per usual it's going slowly—after all, an extravaganza!!! takes time! So—meanwhile—I'm SO PLEASED w. your job—might as well be me—I feel so happy about women landing jobs!! Sounds SO GOOD! The changes ARE SCARY. Everything leads to something tho. Try—don't push the river—again. Denver is only 1,000 mi. from Davis—for sure—we'll work something out! You'll love the West! It's catching. I'm not going to Chgo—maybe we can meet in Colo?? Love ya—Jude
