Included are a letter with an ink sketch from Warhol, 1949, presumably in response to a request for biographical information: "...my life couldn't fill a penny postcard...i graduated from Carnegie Tech now i'm in NY city moving from one roach infested apartment to another"; a postcard to Frances Lattman, 1952, asking her to thank Lynes for letting him draw pictures for Shirley Jackson's stories and mentioning the possibility of a show of his drawings influenced by Truman Capote; an exhibition announcement for his Capote drawings at the Hugo Gallery; and 3 clippings from Harper's about Warhol, 1949-1952.
