Postally addressed to Denise Levertov at her Greenwich Street address. Two brief pencil marginalia, possibly in Levertov's hand, written in response to the contributions by fellow Black Mountain poet Ed Dorn: In response to the lines "...Once I returned late summer / from California thin from journeying / and the girls were not the same. / You'll say that's natural" (from the poem "In my youth I was a tireless dancer)" the reader has circled "natural" and written "not true."
