Title

Carson's Menu While Fying Across the Atlantic

Description

This menu for Carson's dinner on her flight across the Atlantic. It contains a flower, a written message from McCullers to one of her closest friends, Mary Mercer, and a more legible translation by her assistant. This artifact is of importance because it shows how terrible McCullers' health was near the end of her life where she was having difficulty legibly writing and had to have an assistant to help. It also shows the great relationship that she and Mary Mercer had. McCullers took time to write the message, even though she was in poor health at the time, enclose a flower, and then send it by international mail just to let Mary Mercer know how she was doing.
