Dear Sirs,




I have to thank you for your letter of 26/8/24, and I shall be obliged if you will proceed with the composition in accordance with the second of the two estimates, i.e.in Small Pica Caslon, 30 lines to the page. Would you in the first proofs se you send set up the headlines with THE LIFE OF on left hand pages and THE ArchPR ARCHPRIEST AVVAKUM on right hand pages, if there is sufficient space for this on right hand pages.


Would you note that I should like the top edges of the book to be stained dark blue as near as possible to blue of the marble cloth.


Yours faithfully | Leonard Woolf [signature]


I shall be obliged if you will send four pulls of the proofs instead of the usual two.

I return under same cover corrected proofs of KENYA pp. 32-64

University of Reading, Special Collections

Leonard asks to proceed on the second estimate, in small pica caslon leaving notes on colour and how the title should be displayed. He requests four pulls of proofs instead of the usual two. Woolf also returns corrected proofs of Kenya under the same cover [proofs not present at the time of cataloguing]
