TYPED LETTER, SIGNED. BETJEMAN. JOHN.

TYPED LETTER, SIGNED.

NP. 1981.

TYPED LETTER, SIGNED. On Betjeman's printed note paper with his name and address (29 Radnor Walk, London, SW3 4BP), and dated 2.4.81. The letter is thanking a Mr. Hilliam for a poem about Betjeman that he had written and sent in january, noting 'it is worth my keeping in a book which I shall hold on my shelves to look at and re-read when in low spirits' Mr. Hilliam had obviously sent others as well, and Betjeman goes on to say 'The Lenten Poems I am taking to Derbyshire to read during Holy Week. I shall then return them to you in your envelope'. A typed copy of the poem, To John Betjeman with thanks, is included. -- I think Mr Hilliam was david Hilliam, a prolific author who lived at East Coker and wrote many books on English history, and also the little book of Dorset.
