Kenneth Fearing, a very neglected poet of little tombstone ironies on America, never troubled to thank Sol Funaroff and me for bringing out his verse. Funaroff, a radical poet, and one whose spirit was not staled by selfishness, spent days at the printers for Fearing's book, while I went to various editors and acquaintances to raise the money. I wrote a foreword £36 to it and got Archibald MacLeish, Joshua Kunitz, and Farrell to speak at an evening given at a lawyer's house on Twelfth Street.

The kleptomaniac was a very agile taker, and he used to steal volumes from the workers' bookstore, and give them to me with the most plenteous inscriptions to my afflatus, and then rob me of them.

He told Kunitz about his uncle who he said had served in the Russian Duma, and also of his visit with Trotsky who was in exile at Prinkipio, a Turkish isle. Finally, he made some intricate remarks about the summers in Moscow, after which Kunitz, who had been there, told him he was a liar.
