William Vincent: [from letter] Dear Ann, I've come back to New York. Some years ago you asked me about myself. What are you doing, you asked. I didn't answer then, but I want to now. When you've read this letter, if you want to come away with me, if you want me to take you from here, call Victor. You can trust him. He'll find me.
