An Théophile Briant und Conrad Moricand in versch. Angelegenheiten. Korinth. 24 December [1939]. Über seinen Aufenthalt in Griechenland: „J’avais de la veine d’être invité par les Durrells.“; Er vermeldet Schnee in Tripolis: „Chemin merveilleux. Chez les Cyclopéens […]“ [New York]. 1. April 1940: „Pas assez dit dans ma lettre de ce même jour de l’exactitude merveilleuse de votre image potentielle de Katsimbalis que je prétends de connaître au fond […]“ 27. Dezember o.J.

Von seinem Aufenthalt in London, wo er von seinem Verleger eingeladen wurde: „Je trouve Londres magnifique cette fois-ci – doux, charmant, sympathique – surtout les gens. La vraie politesse […]“ Big Sur 2. August 1955. An Théophil Briant während seiner Arbeit an seinem nächsten Buch an den bretonischen Dichter Théophile Briant: „[…] Il y aura un longue chapitre sur Conrad Moricand – au fait, je l’ai moitié achevé déjà mais je ne trouve pas l’heure, date et lieu de naissance de Moricand. Pouvez-vous me les donner? […]“ 29. September 1955. An Théophil Briant nach Beendigung eines Kapitels über Moricand: „[…] Je ne crois pas que tout ce que je dis à propos Moricand vous plaira.

Parfois, il me semble que le portrait que j’ai donné est Goyesque […]“.

An Mr. Lyons: „Regarding the enclosed, can you tell me if Holmes ,Black Book’ list is going to be published? In a look I just finished - a book about books - I am listing in the ,appendix’ all the books I can recall ever reading. Some job! So far as I know no writer has ever published a list of this kind. Hence my interest in your statement abou tthe late Justice Holmes - one of my favorite American figures. (a great man!) Recently you mentioned the publication, in French only, of my book ,Plexus’. A bit premature, no? I am just revising the script of this book, preparatory to sending it to my French publisher. You must have double vision. […]“

An Max Dickmann in Argentinien in Publikationsfragen: „My friend, William G. Webb, of the Alhambra Press (the publisher) is in Europe at present but should be back before the end of November. […] Usually, for foreign publications of the book he arranges to send the clichés (four color process) or has them done here for the foreign publisher. You had better consult him about this. I’m glad to hear that Nexus will be out so soon! And I hope you will find an editior to publish Marianne Ruuth’s text - with photos. […]“

To a photographer named Bishop: "Got your letter and samples of photo experiments. You must not think because I used 'glum + sombre' that I was disparaging your work. It's simply that I can't stand the 'sad gorilla' aspect of myself which I often see in photos. Of the hundreds of photos people have taken from me there are only about a half-dozen I really like (when you come again I'll show you my favourite one). In general photography leaves me cold. I never used a camera in my life. Nor will I in the future.

Now and then in magazines I find photos I like - could be in a good or cheap magazine. These experimental ones you just sent - I must confess they too leave me cold. Too slick for my taste. Too commercial. But I'm prejudiced - so don't take it hard. I hung out with advertising men, salesmen and artists both, when in my twenties - and became thoroly [!] disgusted with everything which they found exciting [...]". - On stationery with printed letterhead..

A warm collection of letters to Los Angeles artist and poet Cleopatra Usher; together with a printed ephemera regarding Miller exhibition, inscribed. Many with personal content. From November 12, 1974: “I got your magnificent letter the other day and was deeply moved. That’s Love with a capital L. Don’t drive him away by showing too much emotion and affection. Play it cool, if you can. What a great, great thing it is if one can feel so deeply. I congratulate you. You remind me a little of the little known woman writer (late 19th century) Marie Corelli.

Did you ever read her—‘The Master Christian’. ‘The Sorrows of Satan’, ‘Lilith’, and ‘The Vendetta?’” In addition: 3 letters signed by Miller’s secretary..
