Dear Mr Harris,


Dr Norman Leys has forwarded to me your letter regarding his book KENYA. Do you think that you would consider taking a certain number of copies in sheets which you could issue in the U.S.A. as your own edition? This would materially limit your expense and risk. The possibility which I have in mind is your taking from us say 200 copies in sheets at cost price, which would come to about [illeg. author self correction] £15 per hundred excluding carriage to the U.S.A. If you found that you wanted more later and we still had them available, we would let you have a further supply at £15 per 100 copies.


Would you let me know what you think of this? If it is impossible, I should be glad to send you a small number of bound copies on sale; but in that case, would you let me know the kind of number which you had in mind. As you are aware, the cost of sending a large bound book like KENYA in any numbers is considerable.


Yours truly | Leonard Woolf [signature]
