Dear Sir,


Grant, Living Painters


We have 186 copies of the above book in stock, and the sales are now practically nil.  As we need the space in our stockroom, we propose to pulp 150 copies.  If you would like some of the copies sent to you, will you be kind enough to let us know?


Yours faithfully, | pp The Hogarth Press, | BH*1 [signature]
