The others are from Ellsworth Kelly, Al Ruppersberg, and Bob P. The warm casual letters from Johns describe the artist's interest in birds, gardens, and weather. He also discusses drawings and upcoming exhibitions. Folded into the letters are a black and white snapshot of Johns and one of Felsen, in both cases surrounded by others. Also included here is the panty hose box in which Felsen stored these letters.
