Dear Sarah,
15 January 2007
I love those old photographs, and remember some of them well.
The one with me with the apple in my mouth, and you in the background.
I have had copies of them.
When was the Big Night, exactly? I can't remember at all.
Jane is not part of my memories of that night, so maybe it was
earlier. Or maybe I am for once leaving her out.
I remember that night so well. It one of the more extraordinary
nights of all my time in Ann Arbor.
You certainly have my permission to follow the idea of putting
poem and photographs together. I suppose we will have to get
permission from Houghton Mifflin, when the time comes, but I
don't think we will have any trouble.
I am besieged by poems in the mail and requests for this and
that--but this is one that I welcome thoroughly. Maybe it would
do as a show, in a little gallery? There would be no permission
needed for that, just publication. But without any money in it,
I don't think that Houghton Mifflin would give us any trouble.
I'm sure they wouldn't.
Good luck with this project, and in all things, and thank you
so much for writing ...

Don
