Autograph Letter Signed, Tom, two full pages, octavo, [June 21, 1980]. With original envelope bearing his signature Tennessee Williams on the verso, to his cousin Jim Adams. A candid letter concerning his problems with his lover Henry Faulkner, a young painter from Kentucky. After asking about Rose, Jims sister Stell, and the creatures, Tennessee Williams laments I am enduring the most difficult time in my life since the sixties. I think Sky would have been better than Henry, although of course I know that Henry is what shall I say? He cruises along the Corso singing falsetto loudly as he can and offering a blow job to every attractive boy he encounters. Since we are nearly always together, we acquire the same public censure. Soon as I can arrange it, I will fly home. He the speaks of his concern about Roses smoking and asks Jim to please watch Roses filters and try to keep her on Now or Cambridge cigs. I will return with at least one finished play. Love you, miss you.
