William Plomer writes to thank the Woolf's as copies of his book have arrived. He hopes the book will be a success. Plomer discusses a new short story that he has been writing, and that it will appear in a monthly review named 'Voorslag' along with his own review of the book 'Kenya' by Norman Leys. Plomer mentions Roy Campbell writer of 'The Flaming Terrapin' who is editor of 'Voorslag' and asks for other books to review. Plomer tells Woolf that he does not know what his next novel will be. He informs them that he may be going to live with the Campbells, or Ghandi's son Mamilal. Plomer discusses more personal information about himself, including that he considers the Woolf's as friends despite them never meeting. He also states that he may be visiting England in 1927. He ends the letter asking for information on the American edition of Turbott Wolfe.
