“my only investment is in an occasional 6 pack and some days at the track”

TLS signed “Buk,” written on both sides of a letter sent to him from publisher Herb Yellin, 5.5 x 8.5, with a sketch of a dog and a drunken portrait of himself at the conclusion. In full: “My only investment is in an occasional 6 pack and some days at the track. I don’t know anything about the market but I’d judge the whole matter to be a game between subterfuge, panic, greed, standard publicity vs. rational and basic fact. Most people want a lot for a little and they don’t understand the sensibility and glory of effort, thinking and the following through of overpowering logic. I don’t suppose this sounds a hell of a lot like a drunken and mad poet up against all the walls. But, finally, the rationale is all the same. I always like it when strange people pick up on my work, whether they be whores in east Kansas City or investment counselours. Meanwhile, yours to easy breakfasts and less and less and less trouble with women.” In fine condition, with a vertical crease and a horizontal fold trivially affecting the signature. From the collection of noted publisher and founder of Lord John Press, Herb Yellin. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
