Messrs. Percy Lund Humphries & Co.Ltd.,
The Country Press,
WOOLF: COMMON READER SERIES I AND II
Thank you for your letter of May 16th. We appreciate your difficulties and are confident that you will try to make every effort to hurry this work as much as possible. We are trying to see what can be done in the rather serious situation caused by your delay, and we wonder if you could possibly manage to get away the Stationary Office order, the 1200 copies of each series with special imprint, next week? There is not of course the same urgency with regard to the balance of our order. Will it be possible also for you to send down these sheets to Leighton Straker by road instead of rail in order to save time? In any case, will you please let us know exact date of despatch so that we may warn the binders to expect delivery as they are giving the work priority. We shall be glad to hear from you as soon as possible.
Yours faithfully | for The Hogarth Press, | BH*1 [signature]
