Shelby Foote once told me ‘EVERY MISSISSIPPIAN HAS A STORY TO TELL’
He was telling you the truth.

Actually most of us have more than a few stories to tell...
However, the majority can't put their stories from "words to paper".
Myself included .

But Mr. Foote and one or two other Mississippians have been pretty good at it .....

In the book Shelby Foote: A Writers Life, page 148 contains that James Jones visited Shelby at Greenville in the year 1952. There is no mention of visiting Keating's home, but it is the only visit by Jones contained in the book.

I've read it. Good read. I find Foote absolutely fascinating.
