You ask where checks should go--to the Fairfield address, please." more...

Dear John:

I am delighted that you like the poems enough to use in your magazine. I don't want to drowd your amiability, but I have lately done another which will, in my new book, be published under the same title with the ones you have as a new # 3 (just preceding "Somewhere they are Singing"). If you can add it to the group, I'll be pleased. If you can't you can't. Don't bother to return a copy here. We shall be home about October 21 -- address: Redding Road, Fairfield, Colin.

No, I didn't know anything, about your being kicked out of Italy. For god's sake! Couldn't whatever it was be fixed up? After all it's a hell of a note for the most eminent living translator of Dante not to be permitted into Italy.

All the Best to you and household,


Ps. You ask when [illegible]
