Scope and content

The New Statesman and Nation, The Week-end Review, 10 Great Turnstile, London, W.C.1. - Maynard [Keynes] has given him Bob's poem about Goldie [Lowes Dickinson: see 18/97], which he would be 'very happy to publish'; it is 'rather long' and he tends to thinking it 'might be improved by abridgement', but does not expect Bob to agree. Would suggest one alteration, which Desmond [MacCarthy] pointed out to him. Is having a proof sent out for Bob's consideration. The poem is 'admirably apposite'; thinks Goldie's name should be written in full rather than initials only.

      Pencil annotation after 'your poem' in the first line: 'about Goldie 1936 or 1937?', but Maynard Keynes' letter, 18/97, clearly dates this to 1938.
