Abstract:

Thanking them for sending a cable on hearing of Dylan Thomas' death. Saying "I cannot tell you what the sadness has been, and is, like -- also the kind of Kafka-like atmosphere of suspicion & hatred, the accusations, some veiled, some quite open." Reporting that when Caitlin arrived she threw herself on Dylan, "nearly smashing the oxygen tent, and preventing him from getting his health," and then tried to strangle John Brinnin of the Poetry Center. Once she was pulled off of Brinnin, she "tore the clothes off the nursing nuns," and was ordered by the doctors to Bellevue. Her transfer to Bellevue was prevented somehow, but she was "shut up" in a home for two days. Remarking on "another woman who had got hold of Dylan" and voicing her sympathy for Caitlin.
