Touchingly sincere letter to the Editor of Gay News, thanking him for the 'your presentation of Noctures in your paper. The illustration of the long figure in the piazza certainly captures the spirit of the chapter... As someone who has been an editor, I know how easy it is to bungle something like this.' Signed in blue biro 'Edmund White' on February 6, 1980 from White's New York address. Old folds and browning to margins. Lemon sold the newspaper two years later; White's Nocturnes for the King of Naples are a haunting evocation of lost love.
