La Rocca, Porto Ercole, pr. Di Grosseto, Italy, July 30, 1958

Mr. John Ciardi,

The Saturday Review of Literature,

New York City, USA.

Dear John:

Some twenty-five years ago I had a poem in the Saturday Review, and maybe itsis time to try again. So here is a manuscript, which I hope you will like. But - I hope not too big a but - it is a package deal, if a deal at all. I don't like to publish stray single poems. I think they get lost. And I don't like to read them that way either.

We came over in May and holed up in our hide - out until the weather breaks. October I guess. We'll be in Rome a few days then before sailing. It would be nice to find you all in Rome again this time.

Best regards to you both.

Yours, Red.

PS I cant buy International Postal Coupons here, and so cant enclose return postage. Maybe the SR will forgive me this time.
