July 17, 1945
A rush change, forgotten in my letter sent yesterday by surface mail.
Would you change 'lofty' to 'stubborn' in the line
They shall come back to build in 'lofty rhyme.'
They shall come back to build in stubborn rhyme.
'Lofty' has become too hackneyed while stubborn conveys the suggestion of the difficulty of the task in reconstruction.
