Bob Dylan tangles with a Catholic mother, 1962

It's Only Rock 'N Roll is selling a 1962 letter from Dylan's girlfriend Susan Rotolo to her mother, in which the 18-year-old complains about her mother's attitude:
"you often put Bob down in his presence...by telling him that his parents never taught him manners...then you turned to Mrs. Evans and remarked 'This is the jerk Bob Zimmerman Dylan, the one Suze likes'...when i called you from Rome last week that Bob (once again) hinted to me about marriage...all you raved about was that there were plenty of good catholic boys....

Mrs Rotolo should have been a little patient. Dylan eventually saw the light and accepted Jesus Christ.
