It's interesting how many fellow "famous" poets/writers of that era contacted politicians and tried to use their influence to get Pound released from the mental hospital. MacLeish, for example, made significant efforts although he entirely disagreed with Pound's views and, in fact, thought him insane. MacLeish greatly admired Roosevelt, also, and Pound was continually calling Roosevelt a criminal. Yet, I suppose MacLeish felt for a fellow poet, the horror of being locked in such a place; also, Eliot has personally requested MacLeigh to intercede if possible.
