To "Prof. J. (Jens) Christian Bay". Dated Washington, D.C., 19 June '02. After some polite preliminaries, "I am delighted to think -- to know -- that you are likely to translate some of my works into Danish....the list of my books is as follows...". He list ten titles beginning with Poems and ends with In the Footprints of the Padres. He appreciates Bay's "two delightful letters", hopes they can develop a friendship, and asks for a signed photograph as a keepsake. Jens Christian Bay was a botanist, a writer, a librarian and a bibliophile who spent most of his adult life in the United States. He seems not to have followed through with the translations. Two sets of two conjugate leaves taped together, seven pages, about 80 lines. Fore edges toned, mounting adhesions to p.8, blank. In Very Good condition.
