My dear Wynn
My first poems are gone to the press for the fifth time.  I have amended them by some omissions – having neither leisure nor inclination for any thing further.
I get on well with my S American book – the title will most probably be Brazil & Paraguay  – How is your
daughter? Has she yet a name or is she still in danger of limbo?
