Acknowledging "receipt of the several issues of Origenes"; thanking him "for the pleasure of seeing A River in Spanish translation"; writing, "physically [Orígenes] is about the most impressive literary review I've seen, and that is only to say that its outward appearance matches its inner content"; discussing his book, No Arch, No Triumph, and saying that he is "rather dissatisfied with the volume as a whole"; commenting on his work on The Borzoi Book of Modern Verse and mentioning [Wallace] Stevens; asking Rodríguez Feo about his work; hoping they will meet again soon.
