Dear Pinkie:

Thank you for your letter of August 31. I am enclosing my check as per your statement.

Our trip back was wonderful, but I’ll save all the descriptions of it for my novel. I must say, however, that if you ever want to see the most beautiful part of the country, go to Colorado. Frank and I fell in love with it. The next time you boast about the beautiful bay you discovered in Massachussetts, we will tell you about the valley we discovered in Colorado.[*]

It was wonderful seeing you all again. Please give our thanks to Ann and Rose for the very enjoyable evenings we had at your house. I am back at work on my new novel—and I hope it won’t be too long before I come back to New York with it.

With best regards from both of us,



Ayn Rand
