West Drayton, 


27th May 1948.


Dear Mr. Summers,


Very many thanks for your letter of May 25th about a possible reprint of Virginia Woolf’s THE COMMON READER and THE SECOND COMMON READER. I have had a word with Mr. Leanard [sic] Woolf about this, and he has asked me to refer you to him, as he deals personally with these rights. Would you, therefore, kindly write to him in the matter.


Yours sincerely,



* Endnote
