Journal, 13 Dec. 1926-11 Mar. 1927 (with some later annotations and scoring out in Siegfried Sassoon's hand)
Concerning Crosby Gaige, and waiting to hear if 'B.R.' [Bruce Rogers] would print his poems; Sassoon becoming stand-offish and philosophical; also giving news of Henry Head (now an invalid) and 'T.H.' [Thomas Hardy] (venerates Hardy above all living and most dead writers).
Complimenting Sassoon on his 'Crosby Gaige poems' and on the quality of the binding; expressing a wish to meet him casually 'instead of with the formality that the preparatory ocean voyage implies'; and giving news of an impending family holiday in Sweden and music etc.
Informing Sassoon that his friend Crosby Gaige was forming a private press in America and would welcome material for publication.
Met Crosby Gaige, suggests 'B.R.' [Bruce Rogers] run off a cheap edition of his work as a snub for Heinemann, who had treated him with 'impudent carelessness'.
