“Had a lovely time last night at playreading of “King Lear” being wicked Regan in gothic-spired turrets of St. John’s College. 
PS: could you please get me a pair of RED pappagallo ballet shoes (7M) as soon as possible, before I leave on vacation. I think Wilbar’s has them. You can tell them by the striped red & white inside. Don’t take a reasonable facsimile! Only the gen-you-ine article!” 
Sylvia Plath - November 7, 1955
