Transcription of dedication/inscription:
I know that like me, you’ve been planning to get started on the Russians for a while. I thought I’d help by giving you something refreshingly original and not too solemn. This is the inspiration for The Golden Gate, and I’ve had it on good authority (Samantak da, Sujaan) that it’s even better. Have fun!
~ Long live poetry,
P.S. – Can’t vouch for the translation but this Stanley Mitchell’s translated Benjamin so man’s gotta have something.
