[c. 1947 before September]
You seem to be the only prop that keeps my N .Y. affairs going. Doris has written you about the telephone - you call Douglas Amann [Amman written twice, second time more legible] and if he isn't in ask for Mr. Klein and tell him the telephone difficulty. Then we will just pray that they can arrange it some way. Thank you for bothering about it - It is pleasant having Doris here - she fits to the country very well - It has rained and rained - more rain than in 14 years, they say - I have to laugh about telling her how dry it is. It has been too wet to go any where but to Abiquiu - and only that with the greatest difficulty -
As I told you before Henwar is coming to do his movie in September but if you want to come over here just plan to come. He will not be here all the time - maybe very little - he doesn't know till he gets at it - neither do I - so when you come out and know what you want to do let me know and come along. Remember - I am 40 miles from a telegraph station so writing is as fast as a telegram - telephone is also 40 miles away - I am crazy with canvas for painting that is no good - today I start to make some with a good piece of linen I have had for this purpose for a long time - It takes so long - I am glad you and Doris seemed to get on well - Remember me to Father So. I had a picnic for six sisters - Domincans - who are to teach in
the Public School this year - I thought it was too bad Father So couldn't see us - and I must say I smiled at the spectacle of the nuns against the fantastic landscape - high cliffs - moon light and fire light - My Abiquiu house is fantastic - but its good. You will laugh -
My love to you
