There are 12 letters addressed to Rosemary P. Mizener; 2 letters addressed to Rosemary and Arthur Mizener; 2 letters to Arthur Mizener, who taught English at Cornell University and was the biographer of F. Scott Fitzgerald; and 1 letter to a Miss Mackay. In her letters to the Mizeners, Porter talks about her books, including FLOWERING JUDAS, and other essays published in HARPER'S BAZAAR. She also mentions that her husband Albert did the editing and proofreading for one of her books. There are 3 letters to Allen Tate, where Porter mentions, among other topics, that she hopes to sign a deal with NBC for hosting a show about literature. Also included are 9 letters to Caroline Gordon, who was married to Allen Tate. Most of Porter's letters were written when she was at Yaddo, a retreat and a working community of writers, composers, and visual artists in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., where she invited Rosemary Mizener and Caroline Gordon to visit. She also wrote to Mizener about the "cloistral" nature of the place.
