Dear Mr Harrington:

I am delighted with your 'Newfoundland Tapestry,' – particularly with the richly-clothed title poem. You have brought in all the grand shapes, sounds and smells. 'St John's' is a fine thing, too, and the sestina. 'Storm Warning' is a virile piece of work. The quality of the book, as a whole, is high. You reach for the vivid and novel phrase, and the suggestions come thick and fast. I congratulate you on the publication. May it have a wide sale.

Yours sincerely,
E.J. Pratt
