Harold Hobson Esq., 
45 Mecklenburgh Sq., 


July 25th 1930.


Dear Mr. Hobson,




With reference to your letter of the 23rd July no payments on account of royalties were ever made to your wife.  We published the book on commission, her liability being limited to £50.  The loss was over £50 and the consequence is that nothing has ever been due to her.


Yours faithfully, | The Hogarth Press. | LSW [signature] | Director.
