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.
