- Ginsberg, Allen, 1926-1997.
The letter contains a very descriptive account of his and Gregory Corso's visit to Edward Weston toward the end of Weston's life when he was ill with Parkinson's disease. The narrative continues with an account of the rest of their journey, first to Los Angeles and meeting Peter and Lafcadio Orlovsky; then on to Mexico City and meeting Kerouac, and then finally on to New York City "peddling manuscripts and applying for passports..."
- The notes were probably written in San Francisco or Berkeley, and left at Gui's place when Allen didn't find him home.
