TLS signed “Ansel,” one page, 8.5 x 11, personal letterhead, June 18, 1961. Written from Yosemite, a letter to photographer Nick Dean, in full: "Appreciate your fine letter. This is just a note because today is the last day of the Workshop and you understand! I shall put your letter on my priority file to get at when I am in S. F. next week. Real exciting about your new work. When see some? Comments on Rochester Mystics EXACTLY to the point. I am fond of Minor in spite of all—but I can stomach the rest of them. Can't read the Sanscrit [sic] on the envelope too well, but if you refer to the new Gnossen (?) meter a[n]d its Japanese counterpart, I found them inaccurate in the higher luminances. I also worked with the new Heiland meter and that seems very poor indeed. Off in various area, and not consistently. Cell seems to have low sensitivity to blue. Calibrated to VI but very poorly 'dialed.' Cheers for a grand summer and congrats for the New Offspring! How prolific can you get??" Adams adds a brief handwritten note to the lower left corner. In fine condition.
