Blake Newsletter
                            Number 4
                            March 15, 1968
                            With this issue, the Blake Newsletter
concludes its first year
                            of publication.  The response from Blake scholars has been generous and
                            enthusiastic, and we thank our many contributors and correspondents for
                            their support, something it has been impossible to do adequately in
                            individual correspondence.
                            Our only serious problem at the moment is, paradoxically, the success
                            of the Newsletter.  We produced 120 copies of #3 and found that
this was
                            about the limit that our resources of time, energy and assistance will allow.
                            If most of our original subscribers re-subscribe, and if new subscriptions
                            continue to come in at the present rate, we will soon reach a point where
                            we can no longer fill new orders.  The alternative to this would be to find
                            some institutional support which would allow us to have the physical pro-
                            duction of the Newsletter done professionally, along with
perhaps the mailing
                            and addressing of copies.  The point to be emphasized is that we 
can continue
                            as at present for an indefinite time, but we cannot continue to grow without
                            changing our present arrangements for publication and distribution.  We do
                            not in any event plan to alter the informal nature of the 
Newsletter.
                            Most subscriptions to the Newsletter expire with this issue.  If
you
                            have received Numbers 1-4 and wish to receive Numbers 5-8, please remember
                            to resubscribe.  Extensive tally-keeping and reminder-sending would
                            seriously interfere with work on our June issue, which is scheduled for
                            June 15.  We once more welcome contributions of news, notes, queries, and
                            discussion items.  The deadline for submissions is June 1.
                            The June issue will include a checklist of recent articles on Blake,
                            including reviews.  If you know of any that are likely to escape us, please
                            let us know.
