The majority of the correspondence in the papers are from the Spanish playwright and novelist Enrique Jardiel Poncela and from Ramón to Luis de Olarra and Ernesto Bustamante. Poncela supplies Ramón with his enthusiastic impressions of nationalist Spain during and after the Civil War. From the transcripts of the letters to Olarra, whose brother was the director of Espasa Calpe, we learn a few bibliographical and publishing details and some personal confidences. The letters to the Argentinian poet Bustamante reveal more bibliographical and biographical details while inquiring about books necessary for his work. The remaining less substantial letters are from Jules Supervielle, Manuel de Falla, Jean Cocteau, Camilo José Cela, José Calvo Sotelo, Marqués de Luca de Tena, Ortega y Gasset, Alberto Hidalgo, and Manuel Gálvez. In addition, there are four poems dedicated to Ramón from Latin American poets and the original of the letter from Miguel Moya about “El Torero Caracho,” which is referred to in “Automoribundie.”
