Letter from Aline Burch to Martin Melsted (23/09/1948)



[[MS 2750/561/9]]




Martin Melsted, Esq., 
75 South Hill Park, 


23rd September,1948.


Dear Sir,


With reference to your call at this office, I have discussed with Mr. Woolf the question of your arranging for LETTER TO A YOUNG POET by Virginia Woolf to be published in Danish. We are willing for you to do this but should like to know whether you propose to publish it in a journal or whether you have a publisher interested in bringing it out in book form. If the latter, we should, of course, have to have an agreement with the publisher and our charge would be a 10% royalty with an advance of Ten Guineas. If, on the other hand, you wish to publish it in a journal, we should charge a fee of Seven Guineas. Perhaps you would be good enough to let me know what you proposed [sic].


Yours faithfully, | for The Hogarth Press Ltd.
