Dear Sweetheart,

They are trying to teach me Latin. I have gotten as far as they love
which is not -- they repeat -- far enough. Do you know that black and white
photo of Mr. O'Hara where he's sitting in the wicker chair? He has his arms
crossed and he's wearing a tight black shirt that shows his neck. His hair
is short and dark and his face and hands are very white. That picture was
taken many years before what happened to him on the beach. He looks Greek
and Roman then Roman and Greek. I don't know. It's lovely. That's all I
have to say about that
