Blake Newsletter
                        Number 2
                        October 1, 1967
                        The Gnomes were at work in issue number 1, and the following errors
                        and omissions should be noted:
                        The report on the Blake—Varley sketchbook (p. 2) appeared not in 
TLS
                        but in the London Times.  We thank Mr. Martin Butlin for pointing
this out
                        and Miss Mary Hanna for having sent us the clipping.
                        Mr. Fred Whithead, whom we again thank for a list of ongoing Blake pro-
                        jects, was incorrectly renamed Robert.
                        Our masthead was deisgned by Miss Amy Tsuji, who also compiled the list
                        of articles on pp. 2-4 of number 1.  On page 3, we should have included the
                        contributions by Fred C. Robinson to the December 1966 PMLA
discussion
                        “Tense and the Sense of Blake’s ‘The Tyger’” (599-600, 602-603).
                        On p. 7 (Stevenson note 3), there were two obvious typos for “Keynes”
                        and “Greek.”
                        All of which reminds us that the crooked roads without Improvement are
                        roads of Genius.

One of the pleasantest results of publishing the Newsletter has been receiving letters from many Blake scholars in the U.S. and elsewhere in the world. All too often, I’m afraid, my answers have been shorter and later than I could wish. This situation will probably get worse rather than better, as it would be impossible for me to take the time to answer letters as they deserve and put out the Newsletter, in addition to doing my own work. Therefore I ask the understanding and indulgence of our readers, who have been (and will, I hope, continue to be) generous with their contributions of material and comment.

This winter I expect to be travelling to a number of Blake collections, and although mail will eventually reach me, forwarding may take as much as two weeks. It would be helpful if readers marked Newsletter correspondence “Blake Newsletter” in the lower left hand corner of the envelope. In that way, I can make whatever special arrangements are necessary more easily. The deadline for copy for the next issue is December 10.
