This chapter presents the text of George Gershwin's letters to his friend Mabel Schirmer from September 1936 to April 1937. Unlike the matter-of-fact tone of his 1928 letter to Schirmer, these letters reveal more of Gershwin as he details both his activities and his inner feelings during the last months of his life. He told Schirmer about his new life in California and his thoughts about his musical career.

Keywords:   George Gershwin, Mabel Schirmer, letters, correspondence, California, musical career
