Howard was a friend from Richie's youth, they used to play ball together. Anyway, Howard was in prison, and while he was there Richie wrote him throughout his incarceration, and Howard had told Richie how much he appreciated his letters. Thus, he felt that Howard was someone who might actually write him back while he was in Nam. (Page 84)
