Internal note relating to 'The Life of the Archpriest Avvakum' (30/3/1944)

1. Sheed & Ward. I think we might give permission for inclusion of Avvakum in the anthology on payment of fee of S/[?] 75 dollars, but before we do so we should get approval of Hope Mirrlees. [*32 Beauchamp Place SW3*].


2. I return correspondence of C de B Murray. I think we should refuse this because (1) of paper, (2) we dont want to do commission books for individuals, (3) the book is almost certainly not good enough
