d the letters, and two M[anu]s[cript[s]. with corrections on separate pieces of paper.
I think Tolstoi's letters are very good indeed. As to Biryukov's*2 "Autobiographical Elements" I think they are quite useful for general reasons, and quite worth publishing.
Don't you think it is worth while trying "John o' London*3" for the*4 Biryukov article? Then the question of money will be settled quite satisfactorily.
I am awaiting to hear from you as regards to the Gorkie and the Dostoevsky M[anu]s[cript]s.
