Letter from Norman Leys to Leonard Woolf (23/10/1925)




[[MS 2750/255/86]]


23rd Oct. 1925


Dear Woolf,


If you have time and can be bothered perhaps you will before the 29th check the following estimates of a cheap edition of Kenya.


3000 to be sold at 4/6 and to cost of £270, so that if 2000 should sell the cost would be just about covered.


Also if not too much trouble





would you find out how I shall stand when all copies sold to date are paid for.


I dont [sic] dream of putting out a cheap edition before spring at earliest - much more likely this time next year, if you approve.


I am to see Tawney*1 and consult him about arranging with the W[orkers'].E[ducational].A[ssociation]. - before I see you.


Yours sincerely | Norman Leys [signature]
