Dear Mr Pitt:
I have had a letter from Cal, who tells me that you have kindly consented to undertake the editing of the proposed book of Newfoundland poems, and has asked me to send my list of selections which you may alter as you please. I am enclosing my list with this letter, and am sending in addition a copy of Magic in Everything, and a few hitherto unpublished poems.
In regard to a title for the book, I would like to suggest 'Here the tides flow' the first line of the poem Newfoundland which might be the opening section. A sub-title could be added 'Poems of Newfoundland by E.J. Pratt,' and I would like the book dedicated to my fellow-Newfoundlanders.
Since Brébeuf and His Brethren is much too long to be printed in its entirety, I am enclosing a list of parts which should form a collected whole, and which I should like as the final poem in the book.
If there is any other assistance which I can offer you, please let me know.
With kindest regards
and best wishes,
Magic in Everything
