Catalogue Note

In this letter written shortly before the publication of Deaths and Entrances, Dylan Thomas give an anthologist permission to reprint two poems.  "Yes, you certainly have my permission to use my two poems—'Among Those Killed In the Dawn Raid' and 'The Hand that Signed'—for your anthology 'Poems for Europe'.

"The first poem was just printed in Life & Letters To Day, but will be included in a new book of poems of mine Dent are to publish this year somne time: so I don't know which you give acknowledgement to—Dent or L&L."
