Letter from John Hampson Simpson to Leonard Woolf (11/11/1932)

[pre-printed letterhead] Four Ashes, Dorridge, Birmingham.




Dear Woolf,


I heard from Savage this morning, that the Nouvelle Revue Française have accepted "Saturday Night at the Greyhound" for book publication in France.  He writes "M. André Malraux did a lot to get the book accepted, and it is quite possible that he may write a preface for the French edition, as he did for "Lady Chatterly's [sic] Lover" which he also sponsored."


Of course I am very pleased, and I felt that you would be interested to hear the news.


Yours sincerely | John H. Simpson. [signature]
