Bradbury responds, in a (1) page personal stationary typed letter, in part, "The facts are simple. For three or four thousand dollars, six years ago, you could have had a years option on Wicked, and I would have done a screenplay for nickels for you. I told you this. I begged you to call your agents. I even spoke to one of them, on one occasion, 5 years ago, urging him to pick me up and carry me off into the woods. A shatterer of dreams? That's not me. Out for the fast buck? Not me. A bunch quitter? No, I haven't done that... I'm still with the bunch. Are You? Love, Ray", (1) typed letter and (1) typed notecard refer to a birthday cactus, the final, short letter to Bradbury, says in part, "Dreams are dreams. I dream it will go well with you".
