  77  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] to William Gaunt
London; Dear Gaunt. Danger of an ice raze I think recedes: the danger seems to be rather of a catastrophe of another kind - a flood.

  77  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & TL[copy] to David Kahma

  77  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & TL[copy] to Ezra Pound

  77  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] to David Kahma

  77  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & TL[copy] to Eric Newton

  77  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & TL[copy]S to James Johnson Sweeney
London; Dear Sweeney. Your letter was a reminder of delightful evenings passed at your apartment - as you say,

  77  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & TL[copy] to David Kahma
London; Dear Kharma. This morning we read in the newspapers that the Columbia River is giving more trouble, and threatening to submerge

  77

  77  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] to W. M. Mitchell
London; Dear Mr. Mitchell. The other day I came upon the rough draft of a letter I had written you, clipped to your note announcing

  77  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & TL[copy] to Willis Feast
London; Dear Feast. Good - you will arrive to give me orally the chapter I am waiting for. The new pattern presented in your last letter

  77  
Lewis, Wyndham TLS & TL[copy] to W. M. Mitchell
London; Dear Mr. Mitchell. That incorrigeable being, Mr. Roberts, was true to form. Last Tuesday he unexpectedly left in the morning plane for Brussels:

  77  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & TL[ciopy, fragment] to The Royal Academy
London; Dear Sir. You are mistaken with regard to the ownership of the picture: it does not belong to me. But it belongs to someone.

  77  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & AL[draft] & AL[draft] & TL[copy] & TL[copy] to The Listener Editor
London; Sir. Mr. Ralph Edwards is no stickler for precision. Having asserted that in a recent artile 'Une Baignade' was rated as a great modern masterpiece

  77  
Lewis, Wyndham TLS to Lynette Roberts
London; Dear Mr. Roberts. The tree copies of 'America and Cosmic Man' you sent to me by hand yesterday were an all time low

  77  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft, fragment] & TL[copy] to The Barber Institute
London; Sir. Reading this correspondence, Miss Porter's mind has strayed to other levelments than those that would supervene

  77  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & TL[copy] to A. S. B. Glover
London; Dear Mr. Glover. I was unable again to contact you at West Drayton. The clauses about which I should be glad some enlightenment

  77  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy]S to David Kahma
London; Dear Kharma. Just a short letter, first to thank you for the promised butter parcel - though as you got unsealed so quickly

  77  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & TL[copy] to Felix Giovanelli
London; Dear Giovanelli. He will never do it, but you can try if you like to get Nash to act as follows: to ask him to send one thing,

  77  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & TL[copy] to John Palmer
London; Dear Mr. Palmer. Thank you very much for the transfer to New York. Thank you also for renewing your invitation to write

  77  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & TL[copy] to Keidrych Rhys

  77  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & TL[copy] to Lynette Roberts
London; Dear Lynette Roberts. First let me thank you exceedingly for the 12 beautiful large white eggs. Thank you for the butter,

  77  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft, fragment] to Geoffrey Stone
London; Next the Roll Mix. The parcel you sent before leaving arrived in good time. The bread it makes us to make spares

  77  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & TL[copy]S to Geoffrey Stone
London; Dear Stone. Well I'm damned! You have circled round me and made your appearance where I least should have expected

  77  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & TL[copy] to James Johnson Sweeney
London; My dear Sweeney. It was very nice to hear from you again. Sometimes in the Partisan Rev. or elsewhere I come across some writing of yours:

  77  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & AL[draft] & TL[copy] & TL[copy] & TL[copy ]to The Barber Institute
London; Sir. Mr. Edwards again! These museum officials work in shifts. But he now comes forward with a new illustration

  77  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & TL[copy] to D. D. Paige
London; Dear Mr. Page. I have just put aside a few E. P. letters for you. Do you want me to send them to Italy?

  77  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[draft] & TL[copy]S to Ezra Pound
London; My dear Ezz. The writing (and reading) you would have me do is impossible. It takes me all my time to keep alive,

  77  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & TL[copy]S to David Kahma
London; Dear Khama. Many apologies for the delay in acknowledging your letter and equally the receipt of 2 splendid cylinders of butter

  77  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & TL[copy]S to Keidrych Rhys
London; My dear Rhys. I should have answered at once but dental preoccupations have obstructed practically everything.

  77  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & TLS to Lynette Roberts
London; Dear Lynette Roberts. Two things in your letter which have to do with myself require immediate action, and obliged me to make this

  78  
August-November 1948
  78  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & TL[copy] to John Palmer
London; Dear Mr. Palmer. Thank you for your letter which I have received on my return from the country. I am very pleased that my article

London; Dear Lynette Roberts. Thank you first for the poems some of which I liked very much indeed especially "1943"

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy]S to Gene Nash
London; Dear Nash. Thank you for your letter, telling me that you are agreable to Gio's proposals. They were not mine of course.

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy] to D. D. Paige

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] to Henry S. Swabey
London; Dear Mr. Swabey. Thank you for your letter. I agree with you naturally that Pound had no treasonable intuitions towards his native land,

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy] to Times Literary Supplement, Editor
London; Sir. In your critic's review of 'From Sickert to 1948' he chides Mr. Russell, who wrote a Foreword for that book. [With review Lewis is writing about.]

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft, fragment] & TL[copy]S to Augustus John
London; Dear John. By all means make use of both the letter and the poem, I should be very pleased and flattered to find them

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] to Kenneth Allott

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & TL[copy]S to David Kahma
London; Dear Dharma. This I fear is a very short letter. You let me say how much I enjoyed your last letter to me the receipt of which this is the long overdue acknowledgement;

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy] to David Low
London; Dear Low. I saw photos of you in St. Louis where I spent some time; I envied you the Missouri sun. Today I have mailed you my book

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & TL[copy] to Geoffrey Stone
London; My Dear Stone. After some days delay I wrote you a longish letter to your Austrian address, which I feel somehow you did not receive.

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & TL[copy] to Alan Pryce-Jones
London; Dear Pryce-Jones. I received your letter jesterday - oddly dated 17th Aug. It naturally seems to me pity that the letter was not published

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & TL[copy]S to Kenneth Allott
London; Dear Mr. Allott. Thank you for your letter: the remuneration you mention is quite satisfactory to me. [With part of Lewis' autobiography.]

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft, fragment] & TL[copy]S to Lynette Roberts
London; Dear Lynette Roberts. I am breaking my long silence: not to answer your charming and amusing letter but just to break the silence.

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy] to David Low
London; Dear Low. It is very generous of you to let me use one of your cartoons for a token payment only. Now as to the subject.

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy] to E. W. F. Tomlin
London; My dear Tomlin. How are you, after all these years? For one thing (let me answer for you) in a very much pleasanter spot

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] to David Kahma
London; Dear Khama. First there are 3 most notable thanks due from me - (1) on account of 5.16 of excellent butter

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[copy to Felix Giovanelli

London; Dear Giovanelli. Your letter arrived in the morning mail. I answer it immediately, and shall send this letter off today, or in the morning.

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & TL[copy] to Dorothy Pound
London; Dear Dorothy. Conditiions here do not improve, and I am very anxious to get out of England for a while. I should probably go to Canada first

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy]S to David Kahma
London; Dear Kharma. For 2 or 3 weeks I have not been well. There is (as far as I know and as far as the doctors can discover)

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy] to Richard March
London; Dear Mr. March. Your letter (of 16 Sept) is, first of all unnecessarily rude. You may not have a carbon of it, so here is how you express yourself

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy]S to Lynette Roberts
London; Dear Lynette Roberts. There has been a lot of bother here otherwise I should have been writing you before this. The long poem is very fine

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy]S to Geoffrey Stone
London; My Dear Stone. So that is where you are! It is tantalising to think of your relative nearness, for it would please me greatly to see you again.

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy] to John Sargent
London; Dear Mr. Sargent. Your letter has just arrived, and I am delighted to learn that you are taking the book, and am very much gratified personally,

London; Dear Tomlin. Your letter arrived today (Wednesday) and I was very glad to hear that in spite of war and offical cares

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy]S toFelix Giovanelli
London; Dear Giovanelli. Your letter and Sargents arrived within a few hours of one another. As you may guess, I was enraptured.

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[draft]S toFelix Giovanelli
London; Dear Giovanelli. Dear Gio. Your letter arrived this afternoon. My rage and disappointment may be imagined

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy]S to David Low
London; My dear Low. It is very kind of you to allow me to use the drawings, and those you selected were precisely what I wanted.

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & TL[copy]S toFelix Giovanelli
London; Dear Giovanelli. The enclosed is a little over the odds and I hope no one in the publishing office sees it before the contract is signed.

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & TL[copy]S to Felix Giovanelli
London; Dear Gio. Your 2 letters arrived together this morning. - On Sept. 20 Sargent wrote to tell me that Doubledays unanimously okayed the book,

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy]S to Kheidrych Rhys
London; My dear Rhys. It was good news indeed that you like my massive vignette well enough to take it off right away to the printers

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[copy to David Kahma
London; Dear Kharma. This again is no lengthy epistle. It is most kind of your wife and you to be concerned about my health.

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy]S to Lynette Roberts
London; Dear Lynette Robers. Enclosed are the lists of works with prices. When you have finished with them will you please make me a present of them.

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy to Times Literary Supplement, Editor
London; Sir. Regarding the notice of "American and Cosmic Man" on Oct 2, I hope you will not think me uncivil, but the reviewer was no glutton for work.

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & TL[copy]S to Felix Giovanelli
London; Dear Giovanelli. Grand news! I have to thank you for this piece of good fortune - and I do thank you. Also I apologise for all the time

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy]S to D. D. Paige
London; Dear Paige. Enclosed are copies of 12 E. P. Letters. About as many again will follow some time soon. Every line of the type-copy

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy]S to Felix Giovanelli
London; Dear Gio. I have had a respite of a few hours and have been going through odds and ends of publicity material. I don't know what you have seen

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy] toFelix Giovanelli
London; Dear Gio. Letter arrived Saturday. This goes off first thing Monday (3 agreements likewise arrived and were redispatched to you

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TLS to Willis Feast
London; Dear Father Feast. Thank you for enquiring about my book in Cambridge and Norwich. In the former city the situation is as I should have expected.

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy]S toFelix Giovanelli
London; Dear Gio. Yesterday mailed you copy of "T. S. Eliot" book. Therein pp. 220-223, you will find passage I send you now.

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy]S to Kheidrych Rhys
London; Dear Rhys. I have rather radically rearranged - not re-written - "The Rot". You did not tell me what was happening about that.

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & TL[copy]S to D. D. Paige
London; My dear Paige. Thank you for your letter. I am glad the packet of E. P. letters seemed to you worth copying out.

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & TL[copy]S to John Sargent
London; Dear Mr. Sargent. The agreement reached you safely, I lean. The two signatures resulted, as I explained upon a slip of paper,

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & TL[copy]S to Geoffrey Stone
London; My dear Stone. Just a note this time - many things are happening of which I will speak to you later: they monopolize my time

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & TL[copy]S to Felix Giovanelli
London; Dear Gio. Yesterday I sent off a short letter to Sargent. I had intended mailing copy to you at same time, but found cartoon mislaid

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy]S to Edgar P. Richardson
London; My dear Riichardson. It was a very pleasant surprise to see Detroit and the rest of the address on the envelope,

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TLS & TL[copy] to Willis Feast
London; Dear Father. A very violent head cold visited me last Wednesday night. Much better now. Your letter came a little before the cold.

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy]S to Felix Giovanelli
London; My dear Gio. A very violent head cold visited me on Wednesday night of last week. I am much better, but will write more fully

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] to Allan Gwynne-Jones
London; Dear Gwynne-Jones. There is obviously somebody or other who wishes to show the Pound portrait at this time - for I can hardly suppose

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy]S to David Kahma
London; My dear Kahma. There has been a week's blank. A violent head cold. This is Monday - I am much better and hope I shall be all right

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy]S to Gene Nash
London; My dear Nash. A bestial headcold is - I believe - just departing, but I still feel a bit wooly. My silence has been abominable.

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & AL[draft] to Allan Gwynne-Jones
London; Dear Gwynne-Jones. Since, for some reason, you referred to me, I have expressed my wishes, as also any views

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy]S to D. D. Paige
London; Dear Mr. Paige. Thank you for your letter and the draft of the proposed petition. This greatly delayed answer is owing to the fact

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy]S to D. D. Paige
London; Dear Mr. Paige. Have just sent you, under separate cover, letter as you suggested. I trust that you will approve of the quality

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy]S to D. D. Paige
London; Dear Mr. Paige. A short while ago I sent two registered and express letters: one for yourself, and one (at your suggestion)

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & AL[draft] & TL & TL[copy]S to Times Literary Supplement, Editor
London; Sir. The anonymous penman the there-words of who lucubrations are "of course", at last has spoken. From his long consultation

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy]S to T. S. Eliot
London; Dear Eliot. Your book, "Notes towards the Definition of Culture", which you were so kind as to direct Fabers to send me,

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy] to Felix Giovanelli
London; Dear Gio. Thank you for your Saturday Nov 5 letter. I should have expected election-week to entail paralysis of all the faculties

  78  
Lewis, WyndhamAL[draft] & TL[copy] to Alan Pryce-Jones
London; Dear Pryce-Jones. I am in receipt of your letter of Nov.10 - Firstly: You write: "we cannot possibly insert your letter this week,

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy]S to David Kahma
London; Dear Khama (or Kahma). Your letter came along today with the admirable forgery of an Ezra letter!

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TLS to Gene Nash
London; Dear Nash. Your Nov. 9 letter to hand. First, the picture question. It appears that such a transaction as you mention -

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham AL[draft] & TL[draft] & TL[copy] toSir Nicholas Waterhouse
London; Dear Docker. The first two lines of "Your reviewers" letter are, as you say, of a most questionable veracity.

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy]S to Archibald MacLeish
London; Dear MacLeish. In February I arrive in the U.S. to do some lectures and a little business. Do you know of any club or college

  78  
Lewis, Wyndham TL[copy]S to Geoffrey Stone
London; Dear Stone. I have hunted for your letter. But this room is a great mass of papers and books, the box in which I place letters overflowed last week,
