Bundle consists of: song beginning "For me Nueva Yorka" [leaf 1]; song beginning "Soy Alberto Perez" [leaf 2]; first page of scene 'in the hovel', with ms annotations in an unidentified hand; first page of New York scene, marked in ms "Esteban"; second page of New York scene, with ms annotations in Graves's and an unidentified hand, and numbered 2; further page of New York scene, with ms annotations in an unidentified hand, and numbered 4; first page of scene two, with ms annotations and marked "Robert"; both pages of the final scene, second page numbered 2. Leaves 5, 6, 7 and 9 also bear pages 17, 13, 24 and 7 of a ts draft of 'Intimations of the Black Goddess'; page 17 has passages scored through in ms; page 24 has occasional ms annotations in the hand of Karl Gay. Leaf 8 also bears the ts text of Graves's poem 'Secrecy'.
