[* } - My address to the end of Sept[ember]. *]
6 August, 1926
Dear Hope *1,
Avvakum has just arrived. Would you let me know by return
(a) the exact title which is to appear on the title page including the wording of the statement about translation and your two names;
(b) whether you have definitely got an introduction by Prince Mirsky and, if so, what should be allowed for it as regards length in the estimate;
(c) whether the MS [manuscript] is finally revised for printing, as corrections in proof are so expensive now that it is advisable not to send the MS [manuscript] for final printing unless it has been revised;
(d) whether you and Jane have any feeling about what the book should look like, e.g. an ordinary crown 8vo [crown octavo] or a smaller size of book?
As soon as I hear from you, I will send the MS [manuscript] to the printer for an estimate.
Yours | Leonard Woolf [signature]
