Norman Leys Esq M.D. 
near Derby


30 September, 1925


Dear Leys,


I enclose a cheque for £20. I will look into the a/c [accounts] when I go back to town on Friday for good and see whether we ought not to pay you more.


We must certainly discuss the cheap edition when you are in town. It would be most important to get organizations to take it. I think it is almost certain that some of the copies sold during the last weeks went to America, as Simpkins, the Wholesalers, took two lots of 12 with a very short interval--which looks, considering what sales had been, as if they had an order of 6 or 12 for export quite suddenly[.]


Yours | Leonard Woolf [signature]
