Three Handwritten Letters by Yehuda Amichai, 1960-1974

Three handwritten letters sent by the poet Yehuda Amichai, between the years 1960-1974.
The first letter, dated 1960, was sent to the poet Avraham Broides, requesting that the latter transfer his request for a grant to The Fund for Encouraging Original Literary Works, so that he could complete a novel called "HaNekama," probably an earlier version of "Lo Achshav Lo MiKan," published in 1963.
The second letter, dated December 1963, was sent to the Hebrew Writers Association in Israel, but referred to The Lamdan Prize Foundation, and contained another request for a financial grant for the writing of a novel. The letter was written shortly after the publication of "Lo Achshav Lo MiMan," but Amichai did not publish another novel until "Mi Yitneni Malon," in 1971.
The third letter, dated 1964, was sent to Dov Chomsky, the secretary-general of the Author's Association, requesting help in collecting a debt from a school in Jerusalem, where Amichai taught. Amichai mentions in the letter a document, which should have boon attached to the the letter, but the document is missing.
Size and condition vary. One letter is in fair condition, with stains, the other two are in good condition with slight tears in the margins. All three letters have filing holes.
