Letter from Acosta

The following is a letter Oscar de la Costa wrote to his wife, Betty


I am a rotten son-of-a-bitch. Now what shall I do ? I'm miserable,
but, what shall I do ? Hoe could I try when I didn't know what to try
or work at ? Please belive me. I will try to be more serious. I know
that you are the best woman that I have ever known. You are, above
all, loyal, and you are what the Mexicans call "buena persona," that
is a good, kind, considerate person.

There have been certain things which you have exhibited that displease
me, but, holy smoke, not enough to make me do and act the way in which
I did. Basically, the problem or te reason for the conflict lies
within me. But so help me, I don't know what to do. Please forgive me
for being a sick bastard. Maybe I'll go to a neurotic psychiatrist.
Maybe ?

Your husband,

Oct. 24 1957

I love Oscar de la Costa, maybe even more than I do Hunter S. Thompson, and thats a whole lotta! One of my favorite books is his "Autobiography of a Brown Buffalo". I live in the Friutvale district in Oakland where he worked as a lawyer during the 60's and everytime I drive down Fruitvale I think of him. There is this Immigration Law Office on the corner of Fruitvale by my house and I'm pretty sure that's the office he worked out of during that time, and it makes daydream about everything he writes about in his book. Anyways, I'm glad you like him too... cuz he's dope!

Man, you guy's had me searching all over for Oscar de la Costa. All I got was Oscar de la Renta. I think you mean Oscar Zeta Acosta.

Now I gotta find his books.
