With an autograph note signed by James Salter to Peter and Maria [Matthiessen] laid in, in part, "After all these years of talking about it..." and "With thoughts of so many shared meals, past and future." Matthiessen is mentioned on page 76, stopping by with a bluefish he'd caught an hour earlier surf-casting in the Atlantic. With Matthiessen's corrections to the text written inside the front cover.
