It's the very devil—the way every attempt to get us together has gone wrong. I'm sure we'll be more lucky when I come back. Then I'm going to find an apartment somewhere—(maybe Brooklyn Heights3 for quiet) and not live in a Fifth Avenue hotel4 among a lot of brokers who walk like captives into the dining room behind their fat wives every night, their chins down over the dress shirt the wives insist on.Lord & Taylor
Thank you for the pink roses that came last night. I had been too tired to get any, and it was the first night I'd been with no flowers at all. I'd kept the rooms full before that, and they'd kept me alive.
I'm off tomorrow, so goodbye until I come back, and a Merry, Merry Christmas!
