Overview and metadata sections
Autograph letter from Jill Balcon, widow of C. Day-Lewis, to Rex Beckham in response to a letter from Beckham asking if she could provide him with any information concerning the publication of her husband's broadside poemTenure, or if she might have an extra copy which she would sell to him. Beckham also inquired about the possibility of her being interested in selling duplicate copies of other titles by Day Lewis she might have. Though considered rather ordinary questions, Balcon apparently found them almost offensive.
