Hemingway's Widow Calls Unpublished Manuscripts "Truly Great"

Aug. 30, 1961 - Ernest Hemingway's widow shipped several boxes of manuscripts to New York today, but said no decision had been made on whether any would be published. She said she considered some of the late Mr. Hemingway’s unpublished works "truly great - among his very best writing." "But I have no right to make the decision," she said. "I am going to follow Ernest's instructions." She said she planned to "go through the mountain of papers to see if he left word that certain things he wrote should never be published." Mrs. Hemingway returned to this country Sunday from a five-week visit to Cuba. While there, she shipped to Tampa all of the Hemingway works that had been stored in a bank in Havana.
