Dear Mr. Price,


I have just received a copy of Citadel for August 1943, and note that Mr. E.M.Forster's article The Return from Siwa has been reprinted in it. This article which is taken from Mr. Forster's Pharos and Pharillon is the copyright of The Hogarth Press, and I cannot find that our permission was ever asked. Mr. Forster also assures me that he never gave permission. I should be very much obliged if you could throw any light on the situation.


Yours sincerely,
