Interesting collection of letters and a high-profile book review by an author in a hurry most of the time. In the first letter to the editorial secretary of De Gids, Andreus withdraws the poem “Bedoel” for publication, because it has already been included in the collection “Aarde”. He's working on a poetry cycle, but he can't send in anything now: "I still have some old poems, but I find them stupid myself". “Bedoel” is, however, included in typescript (with two handwritten corrections) and as a proof of printing.

The second letter accompanies Andreus' first piece for the chronicle “Reacties van een lezer”. "I wrote this piece in some difficult circumstances because my father had passed away and apart from emotional things I got a bit behind on my work schedule due to funerals and family circumstances". Detailed about the title of his chronicle: “Kroniek met kritiek” and “Kritische Kroniek” are neither favourite. Remarkable: “Because of some confusion in my office I accidentally threw the piece in the garbage can, but later fished it out again”.

The third letter is short but important: "Unspeakably busy, that's why I'm going to start with a piece about Jan Cremer. In handwriting, sorry.” This is the review by Andreus van Ik, Jan Cremer for the April issue: the full five-page manuscript is included. Andreus has a nuanced opinion of the inexorable bestseller: “in short, you read this new-realistic rascal novel with so much ordinary reading pleasure that you read it through and read through and want to read the 344 pages as a double Karl May [...] It's not like an intellectual book [...] But the book is good. It has nothing to do with "Great Art".

The next letters deal with the chronicle subjects ('I don't know what I'll talk about next time; I just think some dicks about poetry') and the messy copy ('Then you'll get beautiful twisted sheets with not so long sentences on them either', 'a sloppy writer, this gentleman'). To accompany a piece on Armando: “The conclusion above all: that he of all people has never had the courage to work with the material of his emotions, etc., as a poet must do.”

With the last letter Andreus returns a collection of poetry he borrowed from Hoornik (not included). Four typed poems are also included.
