New Yorker calls a Sylvia Plath story "lost," but it is easy to find

Here's a tidbit I came across in the excellent Book Curious newsletter:
The Lilly Library Twitter account had some excellent words for the New Yorker headline describing the recent publication of a new Sylvia Plath story as 'lost.' In subsequent tweets, the Lilly's own Rebecca Baumann deftly navigated the line between pointing out erasures of the labor involved in libraries and archives, while encouraging researchers to continue looking for real discoveries.
We're not sure how we feel about this story being described as "lost" when it's here in our collections, described in a finding aid, and accessible to anyone who wants to come see it. But we're happy it's being published! https://t.co/dqvA6HHMgX
