Dear Sirs:

I read with interest Professor Olds’ letter, “No Place For A Poet At A Banquet of
Shame”, October 10th, 2005, and your endorsement of it.

The Nation’s founding prospectus, 1865, states some high ideals. Given these high ideals
I am sure that you will give my “Letter From A Colorado Poet” a fair hearing and
consider publishing it in The Nation as an open letter.

I look forward to hearing from you.
