Dear Mr Clay:

Thanks for your note and enclosed poem. It's good stuff but pretty hot. Not that I object to temperatures myself: I like them: but the first issue has several poems – not quite so original in treatment as yours perhaps – which take as their theme the adoration of the rose-bud and I don't want to overdo that phase of our sad human lot.

The best of good luck to you.
