Dear Mrs. Fernald,
I think it is about time now that the question of those two piracies from Hogarth Press publications by your magazine Citadel was settled. I do not wish to press you unduly, but I feel that sufficient time has elapsed for you to have received information from Cairo. What leads me to write now, however, is the fact that a third piracy has occurred, this time of the poem Mews Flat Mona by William Plomer in the October number. In view of the fact that these outrageous piracies are continuing, I do not think I am being unreasonable in asking the British Council to settle the [3 illeg. characters crossed out] whole matter within the course of the next ten days, to pay adequate fees, and to give me assurances that it will not occur again. I should be very sorry to have to refer to my Solicitors and take any other measures to guard against misuse of the copyright material.
