Skyrim Farm 4-5-'66
Dear Slade:

Of course, as I know now, it was the Davenport letters that troubled me when I wrote you the other day! I had not thanked you for wanting to share them with me. Many, many thanks! Yes, I wish I could have known the man too.

I'm embarassed by offered engagments. The dates don't make a workable pattern, and I must refuse

one two I'd greatly enjoy.

With the old affection —

John Neihardt
