24[th] Sept[ember] [1952]


Dear Mr Raymond.


Thank you very much for your letter of  the 15th -. I am sorry not to have answered sooner, but was away. It is very kind of you to suggest sending me The Woodcut books & I am quite sure my Aunts would be very pleased to share with me in having them, so if you will kindly send them to me I will see to it.

The two advance copies of the Cézanne arrived just before my departure & so, I am afraid I delayed writing to thank you or to say how pleased I am that they look so good at such a resonable price & that they you have been able to retain all the features of the original, especially the cover.


I will let you know when I hear anything from Palestine.


Yours sincerely | Pamela Diamand
