Apologies for the delay, but the eye strain is still with me. I managed, however, to read the Campbell poems They are immense no fading of the old form in which I take such delight. Is there anyone on the other side of the Atlantic equal to him? I think not.
And that last paragraph of your editorial is magnificent. I like its affirmation, its outlook. Sorry I haven't one poem to hand over to you. I have a number of projects in 'mind' just waiting for the recuperation of a holiday. I may go to Newfoundland this summer if plans are favourable.
By the way I gave an address at Assumption College last month and talked about you and Roy Campbell to Father LeBel. He is strong for Roy and the tour. I hope he reads your editorial.
I am slipping along a small cheque for your list. Please make it anonymous.
Keep after Marshall McLuhan.
The very best,
