Hey all,

Does anyone here know what happened to EH's old friend Bill Smith? You know, Kate's brother; YK's bro?

Thanks,

Daughter

Dear Daughter,

Bill Smith died in 1972.  I don't no much more than that, yet.

His sister, Katharine (Katy), though, died in an automobile accident in 1947 in my home town of Wareham, Massachusetts.  She was married to John Dos Passos.

As EH said about her death in a 1948 letter to Marion Smith, Bill's wife: "...About Provicetown: I think we should go there and not be gloomy at all about Katy.  She is dead and so will we all be and there is nothing to do about it..."

In a 1952 letter to Charles Fenton, EH said, "...I had known Katey since I can remember... he [John Dos Passos] married Katey and kills her dead when he drives into the back of a truck.  The windshield cuts her throat and Honest John losses and eye."

It's a start...

Best regards,

Robbie
