Scope and Content

Copy letter from Cummington Press, relating to the border on the back cover which will include lines from 'The Death of a soldier'. With regard to the cover binding they are unable to find cream or yellow cloth to match the yellow ink, and propose to use white cloth; new publication date estimated 1 October 1942. In response Stevens is happy with their choices, as long as the white is not one which picks up every "thumbprint, fly leg and mosquito head". He has received copies of Knopf's book which has been printed by the Plimpton Press.
