August 17, 1965
Mr. Robert Penn Warren
Various carbons of poems have arrived and are safely filed.
We don’t have any carbon of WSFN. I remember that the manuscript came to me directly from the typist and that was my working copy. Then you and I collated your copy and mine, and we used one for setting copy and you took the other away for various people to read. I do not remember that you followed your usual practice of sending carbons here of the material you sent to the typist. You must have at home the various reading copies that you sent out—unless, that is, you never retrieved them.
We do have the setting copy and all the proofs. Do you want these to go to Yale? If so, to whom.
No other news at the moment. When will you be back?
Love to and from all,
