"Dear Mr. Hale, I should be glad to get the arrangements for "Guido Cavalcanti" settled before I sail (i.e. Feb. 1st). If it is convenient for you to do so. Sincerely yours, Ezra Pound | Jan. 18." A single sheet of paper, folded in half to create four leaves, written on the first leaf only. Then folded twice more to fit into the envelope. Minor wear and soiling on the letter, faint blue pencil scribble underneath the writing, but generally in Very Good condition. An early letter from Pound with an important literary connection, written when he was 25, regarding his translation of Guido Cavalcanti (first published by Small, Maynard in 1912). Cavalcanti was an early Italian poet who had considerable influence on the writing of his friend, Dante Alighieri. (Inventory #: 1618)
