Dear Miss Mendham:

I shall be delighted to have you use some of my poems in your Verse Speaking Festival.

I think Perhaps the poem called: "Battle Fields", in my volume "Kinds of Love" would be appropriate, if it is not too long, but I think on the whole it will be a good deal better if the person who recites them makes his or her own choice.

Best of luck to you.

Max Eastman
