Excerpts from a letter written by Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald.

The first passage includes a letter from Zelda in May 1919, written from Montgomery, Alabama. In it she discusses homecoming celebrations in the city at the end of World War I, and she asks Scott about his next visit. She also mentions photographs she plans to take of herself; one of the images has been reprinted here. The letters appear in Dear Scott, Dearest Zelda: The Love Letters of F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald.
