"Days in New York have always been several times the size of days anywhere else in the world with the exception of days in St. Louis."

A PERSONAL AND CHARMING LETTER FROM WILLIAMS TO HOIBY. Williams has just returned to New York, describing his jet lag and his ennui, I get up, make coffee, work, then wish there was some way to annihilate the rest of the day. Days in New York have always been several times the size of days anywhere else in the world with the exception of days in St. Louis." He also notes his work at that time, "wildly non-realistic. Like my mental state," and wants to get together to "play some lovely records on my Hi-Fi and I can go on lamenting the fact that I didn't meet you twenty years ago." A beautiful letter.
