Synopsis: Pit's Letter describes the journeys taken both together and separately by a boy and his dog. The boy grows up to be a biology student and a scientist; he and the dog are unwillingly parted; they will meet again, but only after the dog has become a laboratory subject and the scientist has been fatally infected with a "hot" virus.|
The cycle depicted in Pit's Letter pays homage to a 1751 series by William Hogarth (1697-1764):The Four Stages of Cruelty.
