Leonard Woolf, Esq. 
52 Tavistock Square

March 3, 1932.


Dear Mr. Woolf:


Are you in a position to supply either sheets or copies of your ESSAYS ON LITERATURE, [underlining has been added by hand and a large tick covers the whole paragraph] etc.? The book is out of print with us, but we have an inquiry from the H. W. Wilson Company, who handle library indexes and reference works, asking whether they could secure a small number of copies. If the book is still available, could you let us have the lowest quotation on 100 copies and on 250 copies in sheets, or alternatively, if you cannot supply sheets, on the same quantities in your binding?


Yours sincerely, | Donald Brace [handwritten signature]
