Scope and content

Has sent on Eddie's letter to [Isaac] Levine in Chicago, who wrote to Bob two years ago asking for something to print privately; Bob sent ["The Death of Man"] which Levine printed in an edition of about thirty copies; he then asked leave to print another, and it must have been one of them which he sent to Eddie. Bob had not sent it himself, as he only had a few copies and wanted to publish it later in the "Annual [of New Poetry]" or elsewhere. Glad Eddie liked it, as he himself was unsure; Lascelles [Abercrombie] and Gordon [Bottomley] liked it, but others had been doubtful. Levine writes to him occasionally and 'seems a quite nice, rather-simple-minded enthusiast, who really cares about poetry'; he is keen on Lascelles and Gordon, and also Wilfrid [Gibson]. Bob has not heard lately how Gerald [Gibson] is doing; saw her in London during the winter, and must write.
