Dear Mr Layton:
Thank you very much for your complimentary copy of 'The Black Huntsman.' I am already acquainted with several of the poems published in First Statement and its Montreal successors. I remember the third stanza of 'Compliments of the Season' and commented on the vividness of its second line. And the 'Newsboy' I remember 'Danubes of blood wash up his bulletins.' This poem is my favourite in the collection.
I like the poems of the calibre of Proof Reader and the Swimmer and Poet Killed in action.
Go to it.
'The Black Huntsman'
