I’m projecting a violent attack on your poetry in the public prints, but have not all the copies of your published books.
If possible, please send me copies of all your published works (except Here and Now and Love the Conqueror Worm) and bill me for same.
The blows will be delivered below the belt—the seat of your uncontested genius—but otherwise the amenities will be observed, within certain limits,
Best regards to you and Betty, and hope to see you soon.
Yours as always,
