Herbert Ernest Bates writes in regard to an obituary notice about Virginia Woolf published in the Society of Authors magazine, he responds to Lehman about printing errors, insisting that it was not his fault. He also discusses his review of Between the Acts suggesting that it was reviewed too briefly and that he disliked reviewing it.  He speculates that Between the Acts was not what Virginia Woolf would have wanted it to have been, though emphasising that this is how he feels understanding that Lehmann may not agree.


Handwritten letter signed by Bates.
