From the library of Siegfried Sassoon. Laid-in is a one page letter, closely written in ink from Father Damian, to Sassoon. After praising Sassoon's work, he continues: "I wonder if you have come across the enclosed 'Nativity' of the late Roy Campbell. He was a most extraordinary man, and to meet him you would never associate him with the world of poetry. But he wrote a great deal of wonderful poetry. It was sad that he died when he appeared to be at the peak of his poetic power."
