Scope and Content

Letter telling of death of Yvonne last Tuesday at the Cumberland Hospital, Whitehaven. Nicholson tells that she had been bedfast for the last three months as the disease had attacked the spinal cord.Nicholson tells of Yvonne's great courage and that his new book of Selected Poems, dedicated to Yvonne, arrived before she was taken away. He buried the copy of the book with her. After a most purposeful three months, Nicholson now writes that he finds things very bleak. He asks the Wrights to tell Bill Scammel, Geo Bott (sic) and any other of his friends in that area.
