5 Sept 1926
I had a sudden chance of going to Japan, so here I am on way after leaving at the shortest imaginable notice!
I don’t know how long I shall be away, but will write from Japan & will try & send you the MS [Manuscript] of the book of short stories so that you can bring it out in the spring.
I am going up to Nairobi for a week now.
I suppose you have no objection to T.W. [Turbott Wolfe] being translated into Japanese? If you have, please send me a cable
c/o To Mr Tajima
Osaka Shosen Kaisha Osaka
That will be a semi-permanent address for a few weeks.
I’m travelling on a Japanese boat – it is very remarkable. Will write longer later –
Love from | Plomer
Campbell is ill in Durban, he may come to England soon, I have asked him to go & see you.
