In other letters Aiken mentions the effects of his childhood on his writings; his novel Great Circle, 1933; Anaïs Nin's plans to review King Coffin, 1935; and his desire to avoid the draft.

Other writers mentioned are James Branch Cabell, T.S. Eliot, Malcolm Lowry, David Thompson Watson McCord, and Harold Edward Monro. Correspondents include: Jessie McDonald Aiken, William Rose Benét, Edmund R. Brown, J.A. DeLacey, Creighton Hill, Clayton Hoagland, and Richard Trombly's class.

The collection also contains Aiken's story Silent Snow, Secret Snow; his poems, Clock and Compass, Music, and Another Beginning, Midnight It Was ... ; and essays about Earth Triumphant and Turns and Movies. There are also photographs, 1912 and 1930, of Aiken and of the Aiken family with Malcolm Lowry; and contracts, 1916-1921, between Aiken and the Four Seas Company of Boston, a publishing firm.
