Letters from Marcy #30: 11 January 1968

Japanese fan with picture of eggplant on it

Another postcard. The art on the front of the was apparently made by gluing on torn bits of construction paper. KTO explained to me that it’s Chigiri-e, Japanese torn-paper art, and that it portrays an uchiwa (paper fan) with a picture of a white eggplant on it.

Marcy’s handwritten note on the postcard:


Hello—all’s well—going thru 3rd-trimester-sleepiness—looks like 1st part of April, maybe. Someone is giving us a papoose, & we just got a lovely teeny blanket & some tiny moccasins. (Wow!) School is wonderful, tho desperately trying to raise funds. What’s happening with you-all? love, P/M


Postmark: Mendocino, CA, Jan 11, 1968. Handwritten: “Rec’d this 1/13/68” and “Ans this 1/14/68.”
