While I respect and support the wish to have the approval of the Pound estate in such matters, I must also point out that works published prior to 1923 -- which includes the Blast material from 1914-1915 -- are now in the public domain and may be freely used without permission.

You should quote what you are asking him for, and he will probably grant permission for a stated fee. I think he will reply to your request, but he may ask for details about your book, such as publication date and number of copies to be printed.
