Covent Garden, W.C.2.


13th August, 1940.


Dear Curtis Brown,


My apologies for not having answered your letter of July 31st earlier. We think that the paragraph from Forster’s letter will make excellent publicity, and will be glad to use it in connection with Ali’s book.


Yours sincerely | John Lehmann.
