I put these items away in my files and haven't looked at them for 30 years. 

What strikes me, as I read over the notes especially, is the kindness and generosity of people who had busy lives. 

I, of course, was young and self-centered and took all this for granted.

Alas.






The first item, by my friend in New Haven at the time, Tom Ward, has never been published before.

* THE TEXT






NB: In the second paragaraph of Sex at Yale "at third" should, of course,  read "a third". Imagine, for thirty years that "t" has been waiting patiently to return to its home in the alphabet.

Miss Wilder was the 'special friend' mentioned in the Acknowledgements, who funded the publishing of the first 200 copies of Holy Smoke.
