JD Salinger letters refer to unpublished 'manuscripts'

Newly released letters by the Catcher in the Rye author indicate he continued to write after 1965. From The Guardian.

New indications that JD Salinger did indeed leave behind a collection of unpublished manuscripts are given in a freshly unearthed correspondence from the author.
According to the New York Times, the author of The Catcher in the Rye – who published nothing between the 1965 appearance of his novella Hapworth 16, 1924 and his death in 2010 – referred to "my manuscripts" in a 1982 letter to his old friend E Michael Mitchell. A letter to Mitchell in 1994 saw Salinger mention again that he was continuing to write. "I work on," he wrote. "Same old hours, pretty much."
