Series 2. James Greene/Graham Greene Letters - Typescript

Identifier: 352

Series-level Scope and Content Note

This series contains one item: a spiral bound typescript of the exchange of correspondence between James Greene and his uncle, Graham Greene from November 22, 1977 through May 31, 1989. All of the transcribed letters here from Graham Greene correspond to the originals itemized in Series 1. Itemization of letters in Series 2 will therefore only cover the letters by James Greene. Page numbers for each letter will be indicated, as in Series 1, by brackets []. Order of itemization follows the sequence of letters as bound. There are all together 36 letters from James Greene, besides the 43 from Graham Greene. Interspersed are copies of poems by the former originally enclosed with letters to his uncle. The whole bound volume is entitled 'Nepotism,' and includes a foreword by James Greene entitled, 'On Not Getting to Know Graham: An Epistolary Relationship.' Many of the letters are annotated by James Greene. (Box 1, Folder 44) pp.
