Letter from Leonard Woolf to T. S. Eliot (3/11/1947)



[[MS 2750/7/46]]




3rd November, 1947.


T. S. Eliot, Esq., 
Messrs. Faber & Faber Ltd., 
24 Russell Square, 


Dear Tom,


Is it possible to communicate with Hope Mirrlees and, if so, do you know how? An American publisher wants to publish ‘<Avvakum>’ and to make alterations in it and I can't give or refuse permission without Hope’s permission. But I cannot get any answer to my letters, which have been sent to Shamley Wood, Shamley Green, Guildford and to Longdown Hollow, Hindhead.




Dictated but not signed by Mr. Woolf
