Sale of Agar [Thompson's German Shepherd] fell through - had a $300 offer - may have to stay another week for a dog show in New Albany…That is all that stands between me & NY. Money & Agar. Novel is bogged down horribly. Starting over again. Tough. Been a frustrating stay, all in all, too many details & errands & wasted time saying old things to old people. Only the shooting has kept me clean…Nothing is happening here - & nothing will. Yeah - H". In the letter, Thompson mentions mutual friends George Logan, Donald Cooke and David Porter Bibb.
