Dear Murray and Rosa:
This is to say thankyou for the letter and the surrealisty picture of Charlie [Olson] complete with hawk or falcon or humming bird or scrub turkey. Incidentally C & Connie were up to see us for a moment on New Year’s Day on their way back from Rhode Island(?) He has a contract and a down payment for another book from Reynals & Hitchcock. This one is about the headon crash of white and red done in incidents starting from when Chris Columbus’ boys got all poxed up in Hispaniola and ending with someone knocking off Injuns about fifty years ago. Included are Cortes and Pizarro.
"Charlie so sweeps you away with his enthusiasm and the poetry of his great historical movements sweeping here and there with the rush of an emptying toilet bowl that a guy like this Argentine throwing in some cold facts sounds rather vulgar."
