Letter from Samuel Solomonovich Koteliansky to Leonard Woolf (11/12/1922)

St John's Wood 


December 11


Doporior*1 Leona[r]d


I enclosed the letters, and two M[anu]s[cript[s]. with corrections on separate pieces of paper.


I think Tolstoi's letters are very good indeed. As to Biryukov's*2 "Autobiographical Elements" I think they are quite useful for general reasons, and quite worth publishing.


Don't you think it is worth while trying "John o' London*3" for the*4 Biryukov article? Then the question of money will be settled quite satisfactorily.


I am awaiting to hear from you as regards to the Gorkie and the Dostoevsky M[anu]s[cript]s.


Yours | SSK*5 [signature]
