Autograph Letter Signed from Peter Orlovsky to Arthur & Glee Knight, who wrote various books on the Beats

Orlovsky, Peter

New York


Dec 16, 1973


1 page ALs. Addressed to Arthur & Glee Knight.

He writes: "Allen said to send you a poem for The Unspeakable Visions of the Individual so am sending you Lepers Guy, a poem i rote[sic] in 72 but goes back in mind to 1962 visit to india for 1 year + 10 months. Could you please make copies of this and send me my almost last copy back + I will thank you very much. Same address as Allen: Peter Orlovsky, Stuyvesant Station, P.O. Box 582, New York City, 10009. Keep it clean in between." The Knights edited The Beat Road (The Unspeakable Visions of the Individual) and asked for a submission from Peter Orlovsky, Beat writer, long-time partner of Allen Ginsberg. This letter is Peter's hand-written response, which sadly does not include a copy of the poem he refers to.
