dated Saturday AM letter from Oliver Evans saying "Dear Carson, I'm didn't mean to sound cross in my last letter. Perhaps the tension I've been under is beginning to show" describing his trip across the desert and getting settled in his new position. Had hoped to get the first 25,000 words off to the publisher, but was held up by her delay in answering his initial letter with questions. Understands that she had been ill and had not kept a copy of the letters . He reconstructed them and added other even more detailed ones not included above and her answers are written on his letter. Needs the answers to finish the 5th chapter. Had dinner with Gore Vidal and Christopher Isherwood recently
