Sir: The trustees of the late Dylan Thomas have asked me to write his biography. This will take the form of his Life and Letters and will be published in the United States by Atlantic-Little, Brown and in England by J. M. Dent.
I should be most grateful to any of your readers who possess letters from Dylan Thomas, if I might be allowed to see these. If the originals are sent to me or to Mr. Seymour Lawrence, Atlantic Monthly Press, 8 Arlington Street, Boston 16, Massachusetts, we shall have these copied and returned immediately. If any letters contain passages which the recipient does not wish reproduced I would naturally accept his wishes.
October 17, 1963
