"If you have alarms, they should be felt against the background of what you surely must know--that I am very much on your side, and sympathetically concerned with your reactions. That I continualy and impatiently reach out for facts and impressions is certainly true, and probably congenital..."
"There are three unexpected facts that have emerged in your recent letters that unsettle my view of this whole project. Most important is the fact that you are still working on the language book, which I had thought had stopped with your husband's death. You should do nothing whatsoever that interferes with your progress on this work."
"At this time, I am still concerned about the importance of working on your language book, and on what becomes more apparent with time as the unceasing effort under which you constantly live."
"I find in my copy of Focus IV, 1935, pages 39 following, these matters:"
"You cast me out discourteously. Your letter of 14 May has very much distressed me. It is impossible that you could have read my letter so insensitively without willing to do so. What you take as adamantine acts are clearly attitudes, proposals and suggestions elaborately presented for your consideration, and specifically requesting your review."
"Can we exchange agreements that I will stop making unilateral statements about things in which you have legitimate concern if you will stop assuring me what my mind has decided."
"In addition to the titles of your works that you list in your letter, my notes say that I am missing the following:"
"While on these themes, here is a list of the reprints of your works offered in Books In Print this year:"
"The Shout is available in 4 books:" "Until they are collated, one cannot say whether this strange and not entirely successful story has been altered in successive versions.
"...but I have only to relate my receipt yesterday of four issues of the Fugitive, including the first of 1924 which contains your first contributions to that magazine, which surely must be among your first published poems, and the first of 1925 that lists you among The Fugitives."
"...I thank you for accepting the suggestion by Mrs. Jackson that I write an article on the Seizin Press."
"I have not been able to think through a plan for proceeding on the Seizin article, but let us not get caught in a definite deadline, while still pressing ahead with good earnest."
