F.Burschell, Esq., 
32 Stratfield Road, 


23rd March, 1950.


Dear Sir,


Thank you for your letter of March 17. We are glad to hear that your translation of Mr.Bennett and Mrs. Brown will be appearing shortly and we shall look forward to receiving from you the copy of the essay and, from the publishers, their cheque.


We are not able, I am afraid, to send you an early copy of The Captain’s Death Bed. The essay, A Letter to a Young Poet is available from our Trade Department, price 1s.


With regard to Henry Green, we do not handle his translation rights. Mr.Green deals with these himself and, if you care to write to him, care of The Hogarth Press, we shall be pleased to forward your letter.


Yours faithfully, | for The Hogarth Press Ltd.





1. Aline Burch.
