1. The open letter is also in <Impact>, Noel Stock's collection of EP
from the 1940s

2. If you're searching indices, note the various spellings: Tretyakow
spelling)/Tertyakow/Tret $B!G (Bjakov

3.Unable to read Russian, the only info I ever found on T is from an
lit. encyclopedia. If you know of any Western European books that
discuss him,
I'd like to know. Here's the one entry i found, as abbreviated in my
*Tret $B!G (Bjakov, Sergej Michajlovic (1892- ), Russian writer (died in
prison 1939
in Stalinist purge--ironic datum!), theatrical producer (collaborated
Eisenstein, translated and popularized Brecht) and stage designer. Part

theorist [formalism??]. Wrote futurist poetry [Pausa di Ferro 1919] and
Arrested 1937, died 1939,  $B!H (Brehabilitated $B!I (B 1956. [source: <La piccola

4. I have a long list of libraries that have FRONT. I'd be happy to send
back channel.

5. FRONT was one of serveral left reviews EP was contributing to in the
30s. I could also send a list of these.

6. I discuss EP's response to T in my essay "A Dash of Barbarism: EP and
Gino Saviotti in <The Indice>, 1930-31," which is posted at my home page

6. Finally, I would like to know if there is any evidence of Tret $B!G (Bjakov
traveling to Italy or having contact with Italian artists.
