December 6, 1980; from Francelia Butler, Professor of English, University of Connecticut, to P. L. Travers, London; In the wake of the ban on Mary Poppins at the San Francisco Public Library, Professor Butler has asked Travers to contribute an article on censorship to Children's Literature, a critical annual published by the University of Connecticut (see previous item). Travers has done so, and this is Butler's note of thanks. Yet she is waiting for permission to publish the letter from Travers's agent, which she seems to have been refused (see next file, Correspondence, item 4). Butler says that she will preserve Travers's letter to her in the Rare Book Room at the University "as it is a priceless document".
