Dear Sirs,


With reference to your letter of 30 march [sic], we are prepared in principle to give permission for a reprint of BETWEEN THE ACTS in an English edition of GREAT ENGLISH SHORT NOVELS for a fee, but in order to determine what fee we should ask, could you let us know what is the size of the edition which you have in mind?


Yours faithfully | [signature illeg.]

Dear Leonard,


Aline [Burch] is still away but I expect it's all right about Tuesday. Anyway we shall be in touch with her on the telephone some time and if she's fixed anything important we will let you know.


Envelopes go to you under separate cover, and with this letter I enclose [*a*] proof of your review for Encounter.


Yours ever, | [signature illeg.]


P.S. JAMES STEPHEN went to the printer yesterday.
