The brief love of John Cage for Pauline Schindler, 1934-35

Letters: the brief love of John Cage for Pauline Schindler, 1934-35: "These letters were found among materials left by Pauline Gibling Schindler, the wife of the architect Rudolph Schindler. At the time of these letters, the Schindlers were separated. He continued to live in his own house in Kings Road, Los Angeles (now West Hollywood), and she was most frequently in Ojai, a small settlement some seventy miles north-west of Los Angeles, where she stayed with her young son Mark. When this correspondence starts, John Cage is 22 and Pauline Schindler is 41."
"This is an antidote. If one is necessary. It is love and hope and health and all 'good things'. It is a flowing over of wanting for your happiness."
