Hemingway writes cordially to Manning, saying "You were just as straight as you sounded on the phone when I decided you were trustworthy." He offers Manning the original painting used as cover art for the December 1954 issue of Time, in which Manning's profile of him appeared: "If Time has presented it to me then I present it to you if you'd like it. A man keeping many portraits of himself around his house always makes a bad impression on me." He makes a number of comments, some rather scathihg, about friends who were interviewed for Manning's article. He concludes with a friendly offer to visit him in Cuba: "Be a good boy, Bob, and come down here sometime when I'm through working and you don't have to write any piece and we will have fun."
