Letter from Leonard Woolf to E.M.Forster (23/03/1923)



[[MS 2750/93/25]]


23 March, 1923


Dear Morgan,


I have screwed an advance of £20 out of Knopf without very much difficulty, in fact with very considerable ease.  He promises to send me to-day a formal letter confirming this. He cannot bring the book out until the autumn, but, as I find that all American publishers take at least 12 months to produce any book, this does not surprise me. Remind me to speak to you about Mr Knopf when we meet.


Will you without fail let me hear about the label so that I can get this done before we go on Tuesday?


Yours | Leonard [signature]
