A Letter from Mary Hyre, May 2, 1967

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 11:21 am

I’ll continue with Mary Hyre’s letters.  In this one, from May 2, 1967, she confesses that she’s still afraid of the strange man with thick glasses who came to her office, and encloses a column she wrote about a local legend.  (I posted this a while ago, but here it is in its proper sequence, in a more legible scan.  There’s more to come…)

A Handy Guide for International Diplomats

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 10:26 pm

As a counterpart to Jadoo, I offer here some of John’s notes for A Handy Guide for International Diplomats, Wandering Correspondents, and Other Bums, in which he complains about European food and leers at the women.  I suspect this was intended for one of the men’s magazines he contributed to in the ’50s.  As John’s friends can attest, he was always a picky eater, and no restaurant was good enough.  Only he could travel through France and Italy and not find any food he liked!
