Lawrence, KS: (1994). Typed letter on William Burroughs Communication letterhead. Undated, but postmarked April 27, 1994. 275 words approx. with numerous corrections in Burroughs' hand. Folded for mailing, with original envelope. Generally fine. (Item ID: 19790)

Signed letter from Burroughs to an admirer, the majority discussing research into isolating "Endorphin" and using it as a treatment for chronic pain and as an alternative to opioids: "The Discovery was hailed as the most important breakthrough since addiction was recognized as a syndrome. Needless to say no government money went into this research." Goes on to discuss methodone, the drug industry, legalization, and the War on Drugs ("The present situation of filling prisons with with drug cases [...] is insane"), closing on a tender note about his beloved cats ("I spend several thousand dollars a year on treatment for my cats"). A late, and thus uncommonly effusive and detailed Burroughs letter, on quintessentially Hombre Invisible topics.
