Abstract:

Indicating that [Herbert] Winlock is in town and had informed him of Kent's poor health, for which he expresses great concern; describing "the most miserable winter that [he] can remember" and the "old rut of rushed and half-done work" that the Press has returned to; observing promise in Gordon Nobbs, assistant superintendant of the composing room; comparing their inferior equipment to that of Carl Rollins' at Montague Press and pointing out their weakened financial situation; emphasizing the inaccuracy of friend [Bryson] Burroughs' "glowing picture of life and work in Cambridge"; discussing developments on his plan to return to New York and set up a small press with [Hubert] Brown; indicating that he would like to be introduced to Paul Manship and possibly collaborate on a project.
