One letter contains nonsensical references to "The enormous room." Norse mythology and Joseph F. Gould are also mentioned.

A letter and postal cards to C. Bertram Hartman thank him of a painting of "coolly fountaining birches" as he has rarely met a painting that appealed to him as much, and describes a humorous incident in a hospital involving Sibley Watson.

A draft letter to the literary editor of the New Masses responds to Isidore Schneider's review of "No thanks," taking issue with the latters belief that only class-conscious poetry is good poetry.
