Dear Mr Hope, Please forgive this interruption. My friend Richard Bready [in Philadelphia] has just sent me this article. Very many thanks for your words. And I look forward to reading your poetry.
I'm specially moved to be speaking to you. Happy indeed that Native tradition thus continues to be intelligently expressed.
I knew your mother, Elizabeth 'Sister' Goodwin. And she was an inspiration to me. This was, I think, 1976. I own a copy of her book and it stands on my writing desk. I last saw her getting off the plane in Juneau. I was en route from Fbx. I believe she may have been carrying you. I would be happy to send you my just published book ['The Structure of Days Out'] if you could send a mailing address. With warm best wishes,
P.S. Through Elizabeth, I visited [her grandmother?] Frida Goodwin in Kotzebue, and spent a wonderfully memorable afternoon with her.
Tom Lowenstein
