This letter, written in charcoal on a piece of note paper, is to say he has been trying to call Spender, and confesses his frustration at having to leave a message while he is away with somebody 'Nordic', suggesting instead that Spender should employ a 'Latin Spanish refugee'.
At the top left hand corner of the first side of the letter is a small abstract drawing of circular/cellular shapes.
