In part: "The proofs of my article have reached me here, I am returning them corrected. I have checked the verse quotations from memory. I think that they are correct, but I have not the books with me & as we shall not be back till May 17th or so, I fear I cannot wait to compare them with the text. The names of the authors, in order of quotation, W.H. Auden/ numbers 1,2,3 & 4; John Lehmann 5; Day Lewis 6; W. Empson 7. I do not want the names to be quoted, but I see you say that they are only for your own use."
The article in question is "Letter to a Young Poet," addressed to John Lehmann, which was originally published in the Yale Review for June 1932. It was brought out in a separate edition by the Hogarth Press later the same year.
