William Plomer apologises on the matter of asking for money from Harcourt Brace and Company and thanks Woolf for sending money to him. He hopes that Turbott Wolfe is still selling. He encloses a self-portrait. Plomer alerts Woolf to another edition of 'Voorslag' and asks for Woolf's thoughts on 'Portraits in the Nude' which has been well recieved in South Africa. He mentions Campbell, and that they have recieved criticism from a writer named Sarah Gertrude Millan, who he criticises in return. He leaves further negative comments regarding South Africa and comments on a book written by 'Curle' who's book he deems riduculous, he believes that there are many unscientific books written on 'the race problem'. He finishes by reporting progress on the novel he is working on, and asks for books to review in 'Voorslag'.
