Duncan Grant Esq 
near Lewes, Sussex

Dear Duncan,




We have never sold more than 300 copies of your book @ 8/6 and we still have about 600 copies in sheets.  Would you have any objection if I had them bound up in stiff paper covers as a new and cheap edition at say 3/6 net?  We would pay you a royalty of 10% on all copies sold.


Yours |  Leonard Woolf [signature]
