Mrs. Bell*1
Firle, Nr. Lewes, 






Dear Mrs. Bell,


Here is the dummy for Virginia's*2 book, for you to design the jacket from. Virginia said she would abide by your decision about the question of a coloured top to the book. Shall there be one? If so, what tint should it be? But I expect you will be seeing Virginia. I hope you will be able to let us have the design soon.


I was sorry to hear that Julian had had a touch of sunstroke. But Helen writes that he is better now.


Yours sincerely, | J[ohn] L[ehmann] [signature]
