February 1, 1977 letter

From Katherine Anne Porter

To Paul Porter Jr.

Dated February 1, 1977


1 February 1977—after 28 days in Hospital, a lovely rest and relief

Dear Paul


Here is the necessary Witness to whatever it will buy for your new digs, and may it give you Joy, or any way won’t finally bore you, and long life and whatever you wish to accumulate in the way of a personal Past, etc etc etc


Times flies, God knows when you are 86 going on 87 after whatever life you have made for yourself. You’ll see how short the longest life can be; mine has been 7/10th hell, But the rest has been beautiful, and all of it wonderful—May you do half as well, its enough


Aunt Katherine Anne
