CUMMINGS, EDWARD ESTLIN (1894-1962, American poet)
TYPED VERSE LETTER SIGNED ('EEC'), 11 lines, to his fellow poet Theodore Spencer, 1 page, quarto, with the autograph envelope addressed to Professor Theodore Spencer, 20 Oxford Street, Cambridge, Massachusetts, postmarked New York, 31 May 1944
so hell opened? Congratulations:
to both concerned
you'll be haunted by that review
until you lay it with another
If the student can drink tea, I'll
give him plenty...
Poetical manuscripts or typescripts by Cummings are extremely scarce; none have been sold at auction. Theodore Spencer (1902-1949) was an English Literature professor at Harvard from 1927 to 1949. This poem is presumably not published: not in Poems 1923-1954.
