THE JARGON SOCIETY, INC August 7, 1982 Corn Close Dear Bill, I regret the limbo-like stasis into which HEART'S GATE seems to have fallen. The eminent Doyla Moore must be suffering from the male menopause or whatever one wants to call it. I can get no word and finally have had enough. Ken Carls, who recently did a very good job on Tom Meyer's SAPPHO'S RAFT for us, will finish the book off. He's used to working with Glen Wroten at SUPERIOR PRINTING, and he studied with Doyle Moore and can keep what he's done that's worth keeping. Otherwise, I still like the idea of a note in the make-up of HEART'S GATE and propose letting Justin Kaplan see if he wants to say anything. I have written him. If that leads to nothing, then we'll let it go with just the introduction. I won't argue about my stab at it (I can always print it eventually in some collection or other). But there are days when I get confused about who is publishing this opusculum: you or the JARGON SOCIETY??? Tiens. Tant pis, etc. Doyle Moore's most curious behaviour makes me think of the curiouser Dr. George Paul Mras. He allowed me one brief glimpse of his person on some occasion in Newark years back and then disappeared. I wonder if I can count five letters from him in 35 years in response to probably fifty? People are remarkably casual about friends. They must pay a lot m.ore attention to their enemies. Edward Dahlberg always told me no literary advance could possibly be made without a fierce sodality of scribblers who hated you. He's undoubtedly applauding all that goes on in Lebanon from his bleacher seat in the Elysian Fields. Cheers,
