Autograph Letter Signed, 1 page, square 4to, July 17, 1960, to painter Fran Herndon, a friend of both Duncan's and Jess', about visiting plans, "I'd talked to Jack and suggested this coming week-end for you to come out to visit; but the plans have altered. I hadn't set it with Jess, and Robin and Don Allen are coming that weekend. We can't manage more than one round of friends a weekend" and commenting upon work in-hand: "If Jess should be in the thick of collaging - as he is this weekend, we can go to the beach, pickwick style. This week I can hardly get him to come to table. I'm trying to root out angel-lore, still stalking around and around the 'material' for the book, or trying the water apprehensively: with no courage to commit a paragraph."
Folded from mailing otherwise the letter is in fine condition.
