Sat [May? 1939]
How perfectly extraordinary to think of you here on this side of the water! I can't get used to the idea -- but I will. It seems rather sad that you can't come down here for a visit -- particularly with Auden & Isherwood here.
My own plans for the summer are still vague. I shall certainly be here till June 1st. I have my Billy the Kid ballet which is being premiered on the 24th by Kirsein's Ballet Caravan. I'm tempted by Mexico in June. Why shouldn't you come down there by boat from Vancouver? Somehow something must be arranged.
Write me where you are always.
