I've been requesting several files from special collections and archives related to counterculture luminary and attempted social engineer William S. Burroughs. In the first batch I received, among other things, an invoice for purchase of a gram of mescaline sulfate ordered while he was living in London, February 1960.
Today I'll be focusing on some letters related to an article in London's Sunday Times about Burroughs' claims to have beaten his addiction using an alkaloid from the blue lotus flower known as apomorphine.
