Dear Sirs,


Thank you for your letter of the 26th October. I think that your permission to allow William Jackson to export to the United States 150 copies and not 250 of Virginia Woolf’s new book, THE CAPTAIN’S DEATH BED, is very reasonable, and I am telling them so.


I am afraid production has been delayed over this book, and we are not anticipating to publish it before the Spring. As soon as we have proofs available, I will remind Mr. Woolf that he has promised to send you a copy.


with many thanks for your kind permission,


Yours faithfully, | SECRETARY.
