In this typed letter from Linda Grace Hoyer to her son, John Updike, Linda addresses her own unrest since John has left for college. Linda speaks about working on her novel versus doing chores around the home and seems to resent her husband, Wesley, for taking on some of the household planning. Linda tells John that his leaving has given her time for contemplation about herself.
