William Edward Burghardt du Bois writes to say that the Crisis magazine did not recieve a copy of 'Kenya' but that he has borrowed one, and will review it. He also comments that English books are very costly in the United States, so he should perhaps not hope for a large circulation.


We wish to thank the Crisis Publishing Co., Inc., the publisher of The Crisis, the magazine of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, for the use of the unpublished letter written by W. E. B. Du Bois.
