Letters from Marcy #2: 31 January 1965

The first of the handwritten notes was a postcard from Keams Canyon, postmarked the same day as letter #3. But letter #3 refers to “the postcard I sent,” which must be this one, so I’m calling this #2 and the other one #3.

It seems a little silly to put handwritten letters in typewriter font, so I’ll just put them in block quote format.

The message that Marcy wrote on the postcard was very brief:
