SINCLAIR LEWIS 2601 EAST SECOND ST. DULUTH 5, MINNESOTA Lookit, if I get a house right out in the country this coming summer, I might be kind of lonely, when you were not there. Your mother will certainly be there a part, maybe a good deal, of the time, but it will be just as well not to have her all the time, so that it won't be too much of a habit. Is there one of your agential cubs who is a fairly amusing fellow, intelligent, normal, no money, presentable, whom I might use as a sort of secretary for part of the summer? He probably wouldn't be too much driven; would have a lot of time for his own work; it might be a month-or-two-or-three God-send for somebody. He wouldn't necessarily be a kid, though; an older gent might be better. Think over your clients and patients.
