Collection contains letters from O'Neill on various topics including his dues to the Society of American Dramatists and Composers, a photograph of his father in the role of Christ in "The passion," the sale of some property and a thank you to Judith Ish-Kishor for a supportive letter.

Worcester answering questions re the publication of his plays and referring to the first collection, "Thirst." Also included is a letter, 1945 May 17, to E. J.
