Scope and Contents: A majority of the Nancy Cunard to Charles Burkhart letters concern travel, meetings between the two, antiquing, selling Wyndham Lewis drawings and an Arp painting, life in France, health problems, and other personal matters. Several other letters concern her work on African ivory and the problems she has locating museums which exhibit this kind of art. Although she occasionally sends him poems, she never writes about her poetry in her letters.
