Woolf explains the situation of the reprint of The Life of the Archpriest Avvakum (enclosing Sheed and Ward's letter of 14th July 1947) and asks if he should inquire to see if Mirrlees could view the reprint, with alterations. He notes that he has found the original agreement, and they have the right to sell or assign American rights, giving the translators 75% of the receipts.

The Sheed and Ward letter explains that the original translation contains inaccuracies and they need to make alterations.

Typescript letters both unsigned.
