A letter from Eileen Chang to C.T. Hsia, 1989. In this letter dated October 10, 1989, Eileen Chang talks about her shoulder injury is getting better, but she still needs to do exercise. Qin Shou'o's "Qiu Hai Tang" is pretty bad. It would be better as a play script. Song Qi is helping Zhang to get her copyright of "Chi Di Zhi Lian" back. Zhang also asks Hsia to keep her address secret. The copyright of "Rouge of the North" should belong to the author. Unfortunately the contract was lost. She asks Hsia to give the novel to Cheng & Tsui to publish. The envelope has USPS 25 cents-stamp with dated stamp of 11 Oct 1989 Los Angeles is addressed to "Professor C.T. Hsia, 415 W. 115th St., Ap. 22, New York, N.Y. 10025" from address "Reyher, 1626 N. Wilcox Av., #645, Hollywood, CA 90028."
