Mr. Terrence O'Neill 521 N. Central St. Louis, Missouri 63130
Dear Terry O'Neill:

I want you to know that I deeply appreciate your beautiful letter of May 5, 1973. I am glad to know that I do not seem "far away or long ago" to you. I am neither, as you know, and at the present moment I feel very close to you, indeed.

Your comment on the poem "Ghostly Brother" tells me a great deal about you, and it is good to know.

I hope we may meet some time.

Do you know that United Artists is bringing out some albums of my work? The first is now being prepared and I think will be out in July. We worked on the records for a period of eight weeks and they are now working on the albums in Hollywood.

Thanks and best wishes, your friend

John G. Neihardt
