To the Editors:

With regard to Edward Butscher’s letter (March 3) planning a “definitive biography of Conrad Aiken,” I have not given permission to Mr. Butscher for the use of publication in any form of the private papers or letters of Conrad Aiken.

Selected Letters of Conrad Aiken, edited by Joseph Killorin, will be published next year by Yale University Press.
