A non-profit corporation devoted to charitable, educational, & literary purposes THE JARGON SOCIETY, INC. September 13, 1980 Corn Close, Dent, Sedbergh, Cumbria, England Dear Bill, I haven't disappeared across the galaxy. But, what I did was get in touch with a gay Whitman scholar I know in Toronto, Michael Lynch, and, as you'll see, he has produced an interesting development: the cache of Traubel's letters to MH at the Beinecke. In addition to that, he has sent a later card telling me of a photograph of HT/MH in a private collection in Canada. I told him, by all means, get a copy. So, what do think about printing both sides of the correspondence? I'm inclined to say Yes. Do you have easy access to the Beinecke? If not, we can make use of the services of my friend Sandy McClatchy, who has even taught a few gay studies in their English Department, for the very first time, as you might suspect. I have told him a bit of what Jargon Society has in mind. If you want to contact him, then by all means do: J.D. McClatchy, 1806 Yale Station, New Haven, Conn 06511. Phone: (203) 562-7717. Jargon Society can pay him a few bucks if he needs it. Tell me what you think. I read through the Hartley letters and made a few notes, which iJHiiHM are typed on separate sheets. I think either one leaves the script as it is— including the rather odd punctuation with dashes later on— or, cleans it up a little. This not being a pedantic enterprise, maybe the originality of it all should be kept as much as possible. Anyway, I send 'corrections' along. Am off to Skye, Harris, and Wester Ross for some walking. Back on September 27th. And am here until October 30th. Looking forward to hearing from you. The project is a good one.
