TAMARIND LITHOGRAPHY WORKSHOP, INC. 1112 N. Tamarind Avenue, Los Angeles 38, California

April 9, 1963

Miss Louise Nevelson
29 Spring Street
New York, N.Y.

Dear Miss Nevelson:

Enclosed is check for $145.10 and tax-exemption certificate to cover cost of air jet tourist transportation from New York to Los Angeles. The exemption certificate is to be presented to the travel bureau when you arrange your flight.

Unless you have family or friends with whom you might be staying out here and who will meet you at the airport, may I suggest the following:  the easiest way to get into the city is by Airtransport Bus. You pick this up in front of the airport building. Take the one stopping at the Hollywood [[underlined]] Plaza [[/underlined]] Hotel. Workshop hours are 9 AM to 5 PM, so if your flight gets in after 5 PM, it would be well to stay at the hotel overnight and take a taxi to our workshop the next morning. If your flight gets in during the early part of the afternoon, come by cab to the Workshop from the Hollywood Plaza.

Again, if you have no plans of your own, we would like to assist you in getting an apartment. Bed-sitting room and kitchen apartments (called singles out here) rent for around $115 a month in buildings with pool. Apartments with separate bedrooms would be a little higher. If a pool is of no interest to you, we might be able to find something for less. Do let us have any ideas you may have on this subject so that we can line several things up for you to look at.

All the best and have a fine flight.

P.S. It would be helpful for our staff to be able to see some of your drawings and get an idea of your technique. Can you bring some with you? Also a brief biography. Many thanks.
