Two letters related to author Katherine Anne Porter. The first is a copy of a 1965 letter from Porter to Dr. Louise Gossett, wife of Trinity University professor Dr. Thomas Gossett, regarding a meeting between the Gossetts, Porter, and Flannery O'Connor (the Gossetts introduced Porter and O'Connor in 1958).
