Thanks for the responses thus far.  I tried to provide context when possible, b
ut often Pound (as many editors and readers of his letters know) just sort of p
lops names in his letters, so they really don't have a context.  Except, of cou
rse, there are the larger contexts: he's writing to Borah to convince him to be
come an advocate of Social Credit, to convince him that Mussolini was right in
invading Abyssinia, and to convince him to run for President.  Anyway, help whe
re you can, and I'll take it from there.

p.s.: For those of you interested in the tendency of Pound to make obscure refe
rences, Barry Ahearn addresses that quite well in his Intro to the Pound/Cummin
gs letters.
