"The only thing I've done is prove I can sing pop music," vents Cline, "this way it will sell to those pop fools and the pop DJs will have to play it"

ALS signed “Patsy & All,” three pages, 6.25 x 10, August 22, 1961. Letter to friend Marie Flynt, in full [grammar and spelling retained]: "Thought while I'm taking an hour out to rest a bit I'd drop you all a line or tow. I've been so mad and so busy for the last two weeks I could bust. I could kick Owen Bradley from the word go. He don't want to record me anyway but pop and all the songs I took him (20 so far) he's turned everyone of them down. So I've just give up & don't give a dam if I c cut a single record or not, and don't think I didn't tell him I felt this way. So far I've done one side of a single (one song) and four new ones for the album (not new either). The ones so far are 'True Love,' 'Wayward Wind,' 'San Antonio Rose,' 'and 'Poorman's Roses' with violins. Dig that?!! The only thing I've done is prove I can sing pop music and I know that, and that this way it will sell to those pop fools and the pop DJs will have to play it. Anyway I'm very dam unhappy. Ha. I'll leave Sat for Albuquerque N. Mexico, Texas and North Carolina for about 12 days all together. Then come home for 2 days then to New York state for 10 days and up into Canada and then home for 3 days then to Michigan (shit), then to Florida, then home for 3 days, then to California for 10 days then in March I've got 4 weeks at Lake Ty-ho in Vegas & 4 weeks at 'Heralds Club' in Reno at $2500 a week 2 shows a night and Bob Wills will back me and 'Sons of the Pineaneers' are on the same show. How's that for billing and glass??! I guess Charlie will go with me on those trips to Vegas. By the way, do you have a tape recorder? If you do I'll try to get you a tape of these sessions I'm doing. Hope all is well with you all. We are all fine and Julie will have a birthday party with 8 to 10 kids this coming Fri. nite. She will be 3. Randy was 7 mos old today. They are growing up so fast and I'll be going so much now until Dec. I sure do hate to leave them. Things are a little better than they were. Guess I'll be closing for now and you all write & plan to come to the convention for sure. Write soon & tell all hello." In fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope, addressed in Cline's own hand.
