Hamilton, I know most publishers don’t go to their offices on Saturday mornings. Well, I do and I thought I should tell you that yours seems to have been on fire all night. Let me know if I can lend you some typewriters or anything. Goodbye.

A woman once asked Mr. Cage, ‘’Have you an explanation of the symbolism involved in the death of the Buddha by eating a mushroom?'’ Mr. Cage thought: ‘’Mushrooms grow most vigorously in the fall, the period of destruction, and the function of many of them is to bring about the final decay of rotting material. In fact, as I read somewhere, the world would be an impassible heap of old rubbish were it not for mushrooms and their capacity to get rid of it. So I wrote to the lady in Philadephia. I said, ‘The function of mushrooms is to rid the world of old rubbish. The Buddha died a natural death.’ ‘’
