In this letter to Florence Schorenstein, John O'Neal discusses the arrangements for the funeral of the Free Southern Theater in 1985. O'Neal's expectations for the event brings the connection between the Free Southern Theater and New Orleans full circle through the incorporation of a New Orleans cultural tradition of the jazz funeral to signify FST's death and the lasting influences that FST and New Orleans had on each other.
