TI have kn-ow~n ~com IHurstonr and he.r work for nearly thirty
yea9rs and assisted in securing the publication of her
first noveJ1 entitled, "Jonrat's Gouird V'ine,"

Friends of Zorao burston in Eatonville, where she was born,
are plarnring some kninid of a memorial for her. In spite of
t~the cragedy of Lar let .r years, we ha~ve to recognize that
she was one of the most distingu~ished novelists that; the
;;egro race h;as p~rodu:ced.

I am w ritinE- to incuire wh:o took charge of Lor funeral sor-
vices and where she was buried. Can you advise me whether
there were any manuscripts finished or unfinisheod in th~e
little shaok where she apont her last few years? I shall
granitly appreciated an~y infornaatlon you can giv.e me about
her ddath. I saw the brief announcement in last week's
issue of :Neswawek lCagazina.

Ver;; truly~ yours,


Edwin 0. Crover
