Hello Sweetie –

Nothing much to tell. I just feel like talking to you. It is a very stormy day (hail this morning) — cold, miserable and lonely. I love you and miss you.

Up to now I haven't had much chance to miss you. Last night and the night before I stayed with David and Deed. Had a fine uneventful weekend. Last night the three of us drew his Xmas cards. The stunt of folding papers in thirds and making a drawing on one third which will connect with previously drawn thirds by the other two person but whose drawings are covered up. That sentence may suggest the game. It was fun. My drawing was good and we wound up with some fine pornography. The weekend was somewhat alcoholic but nothing like during the week with Corbett. We wound up by giving a party at his apartment Friday night. I shall steer clear of Corbett this next week a pherhaps get some painting done. I wish I could enclose $50 from our sale. The woman made her selection (the blue + white vertical from my show
[sketch of painting inserted]) and the painting is hanging in her house. She has a check coming (dividend?) out of which she says she will pay me $150 sometime this week. But I'm making no serious plans for that money because the woman is very odd. The colors were "darling" + "cute".

The drawing portfolio was finished and is practically sold out. It is stunning and elegant looking and there have been nothing but compliments on it. Most people say it should have sold for $5 instead of $1.50.

I shall paint not that having talked to you I feel better. See you Friday night. Say hellow to Gake, Crissy, + Nanny + G. Roy. I love you very much

Witz

P.S. Gake + Crissy both have packages E. Gilman in Redlands. I'll bring them. Love again

W.
