Leonard Woolf writes and explains that he has a temperature but that he will try to be clearer in his writing. He explains that he has aways advised against a reprint but that he does not want to persuade him against his own inclination. He also says that he canot make decisions for him nor can he accurately estimate sales. He wants to act in his best interests so that he will not make a loss. He states that he has got R. & R, Clark prepared to print and also provides a rough estimate for a cheap estimate. He finishes his letter hoping that they will not quarrel.
