Hi Rick,

Thanks for the pointer to your notes; I am sure they are valuable.

And, I kiss your rod; yes, Eliot did publish a Collected as well as
Complete Poems. I also have both, but the former had escaped my mind. I
think of his last edition, 1963 Complete, as the definitive text .

Cheers, Jennifer
