Letters from Marcy #25: 31 July 1967

First mention in these letters of Peter and Marcy’s wedding; also, some discussion of the school they were planning. Also: “I have a sacred & holy mission: to ask you to ask Uncle Hyman for a recipe for good sour Jewish rye—no cookbooks have any real recipes that we’ve found—they’re all for Swedish rye or rye-whole wheat, or something, but about 6 of us would love to make good rybread, no matter how much work.”

Letters from Marcy #26: 28 August 1967

Marcy is now 24 years old, though she doesn’t mention that in this letter. Assorted thoughts about sourdough rye bread, bureaucratic obstacles to getting the Caspar Community School up and running, abalone stew, and various possible future plans. Including this: “How would you like a grandchild? (This is not a matter of decision I ask you, but just a preference: rare, medium, or well-done?)—anyway, we’re thinkin’ about it.”
