Letter [Tls]; "Freedom"; "Looking Out the Window"

by Stafford, William

Condition: Very Good

Lake Oswego, OR: n. p. , 1988. First edition. Paperback. Very Good. Typed letter (Tls); poem and an essay on 8 1/2 x 11 1/2 in (approx.) paper. The letter is about 115 words written in reply to a letter asking for advice. Included is a typescript of the poem "FREEDOM" , previously published. Also, an essay written in response to the letter: "Looking Out the Window", which was not used (whether it was otherwise published I can not determine). (The poem was meant to follow the essay.) Folded in thirds for mailing, some edge wear, the essay in particular creased, but all about very good.

The letter is addressed to James L. Harmon who published a book TAKE MY ADVICE, with "advice" from about 50 celebrities ranging from Katherine Hepburn to Howard Zinn to Robert Creeley to Camille Paglia Ram Dass. A diverse lot. This letter was not used.
