Dear Sally:
Congratulations on your new theater—it sounds magnificent! I saw Bill Judson frequently over the summer and he spoke fondly of your and your activities, which surprised me not at all.
I will be travelling to California during our Spring Vacation, mostly to show films, and I am now in the process of shopping about for situations en_ route. I need the money; my stereoscopic film-making has become much more expensive than I ever anticipated and these debts are mounting at an alarming rate. Would a Pittsburgh stop-over be possible, do you think? I would love to do it. I'd be coming through between March 10 and 20.
I have several new films which I think you havn't seen, plus of course my old standards. Some reading matter enclosed to keep you posted on what I've been up to.
All best wishes,
Cheers and blessings,
