It has been part of my fate that I should spend much of my
life surrounded by artists, writers, musicians, a few painters and
many people In show business. Sometimes I get a little weary of
them all. I often think that too much is claimed for genius in the
name of genius. " And bow the dears take advantage of It, riding " -ruthlessly
over the fine sensibilities of us lesser mortals, giving
..vent to childllshness : and immaturity and plain unadulterated
rudeness all with the somewhat slim excuse that they are gifted,'
and apart from the multitude. Could be, but I don't believe It

: tn her lovely and very quiet home, near Laural Canyon In North
a Hollywood. (Saturday night we went to Van Nuys to a birthday
) party arranged for her niece by thhe latter' attractive and very
;; wide awake children, Michael and Betsy Jordan. I must tell yon
more about them some day and the school they attend. Sunday
morning we had venison steak for breakfast served out of doors
in a flower rimmed patio. The rosea are magnificent now in
California. And Sunday afternoon we attended a performance of '
( Traviata which has always seemed , to me a nearly ; perfect
. opera. It does seem strange to me, used to opera at the Met, ' '
In late fall and winter to attend it on a hot afternoon nearly
efl. And I never saw as many mink and sable coats in my life '

deliver one of the finest Speeches I have heard about poetry and '

brilliant and witty defense of poetry. His' poetry I have liked, '
and the way his mlnd.works end I Just found out that after grad
