TO: Kansas City FBI office

FR: Deputy Pardo, Shannon County Sheriff’s office

DA: June 21, 2011

RE: Disappearance of Miguel Starkweather, Catherine Shockley, Odysseus “Odie” Leucas, and three other UCLA scholars.

The Sheriff told me to forward the attached manuscript to the Special Agent in charge of the Ozarks investigation. Anyone assigned yet?

The manuscript, a poem called “The Apothecary’s Kitchen: Lefka, 1947″ by Demod Smith, was found by yours truly at the Ozark farmhouse where the scholars were last seen.  It mentions a Greek grandmother (“Yiayia”), the Greek island of Lefka, and a dead apothecary. These might be leads.  We’re working them from our end.

I have jokingly offered to go to Lefka to investigate, but the wife and I are leaving tomorrow on a two-week vacation to California to see her folks, so the joke didn’t go very far.

I don’t spook easy. But this evening Karen showed me a post card sent from Greece in 1961 to this farm shortly after our poet Demod would have taken up here.  With a seed company magnet, the card was still stuck up on his frig. Like he got it last week.

On one side of the card, a black-and-white sketch reprint shows the ruins of Meton’s Observatory in Athens.

On the other, somebody scrawled this cheerful stanza:

And the moon in haste eclipsed her,
and the sun in anger swore
his wick would curl within him
and give light to you no more.

Re: Disappearance of seven members of UCLA’s Leucas-Shockley team

Da: March 5, 2011

These two documents were found on the Smith farm.  Author is unknown but he or she appears to be a member of the team drafting an annotation to the poem pursuant to the UCLA-Scattergood-Smith contract that is the subject of the California lawsuit.

Tonight, I’ve turned off the cabin’s lights–all two of them–to better see my first Ozark snowfall.

It’s beautiful and eerily quiet. Living up to my expectations.

But please don’t expect me to go all Robert Frost on you here at The Hayfield Forever and wax poetic over the snowy evening and a hayfield that’s filling up with snow. I don’t have a poetic or lyric bone in my body. Moreover, I’m occcupied. I’ve got one eye on the snowflakes’ slow floating descent and the other for Cathy, who soon should come striding through this wintry night from the farmhouse to help me drink an amazingly strong & smooth rye whiskey I found in cupboards.

The Jennings of Eminence Welcome Back Their California Girl

Paul and Myrtle Jennings of Eminence had a special guest from California at their farmhouse this past weekend. Their granddaughter Mattie Jennings returned to her hometown while on break from her work as a court stenographer in Los Angeles. The weather cooperated with just one brief snow flurry confined to Friday evening, and the Jennings family was able to have a “wonderful time” with their visitor.

Legal Briefs (from the Daily Legal Record)

Governor Jerry Brown did not waste much time in offering Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Asa Hornscar a seat on the California Supreme Court. Yesterday, and in his second month in office, the Governor called Judge Hornscar at her chambers in Santa Monica to say he wanted to nominate her to the state’s highest bench.
