August 7, 1960 My dear Vocha: This will probably be my last letter before sailing; I do get additional mail I may not answer except in emergency, until I am on board. There are still nine days before I leave and the one big problem of marketing my manuscripts. I have been given contradictory... Sign in to see full entry.

Background of his diaries

The dictionary defines pilgrimage as "a long, weary journey, as to a shrine." However, the Latin roots of the word carry the meaning of "traveling or wandering through open spaces or fields."

Cambridge, Mass, July 31, 1960 My dear Charles: My greatest difficulty has been to get suitable time to write these and not just notes like those of a diary.

July 30, 1960 Cambridge Dear Harry:

July 30, 1960 Cambridge Dear Harry: I am in another of my fools-for-luck series. Come down to Cambridge to call at Harvard and look up a family connection.

June 23, 1960

June 23, 1960 My dear John: It probably takes at least six days for mail to reach Gloucester—sometimes two days from Boston, because few trains carry mail or baggage. I have not heard from either the bank or my travel agent recently. I have overpaid my travel agent over a hundred dollars and he is... Sign in to see full entry.

Gloucester, Mass. June 18, 1960 My dear John: I am working now and because of that have failed to make diary entries. So I am going to pour off steam and let you have it.
