October 20th

Dear Paul Darrow:

I hope that you and your family are well and as happy as these troubled times will permit.

The arduous Los Angeles chapters have just been completed. I now have about 500 pages on ice. The book will probably go another 200.

Just a few questions: What was your wife's maiden name, first and last name? I remember rightly, don't I, that Mrs. Darrow has light bond hair, blue eyes, and a very fair complexion?

I'll appreciate it if you'll send me this little information by return air-mail.

With friendly greetings to you and your family,

Irving Stone
