Messrs. R. &. R. Clark, 


December 13th. 1929.


Dear Sirs:


A ROOM OF ONE'S OWN. 4th Impression.


We shall be glad if you will print 3,000 copies of the above impression, the price of which we presume will be the same as for the other Impressions. The only alterations are


On the title page:     FOURTH IMPRESSION     

     "  back  "            First published September 1929

                               Second impression October 1929

                               Third impression November 1929

                               Fourth impression December 1929


and on page 31, fourth line from the bottom for "Life of Miss Emily Davies" read "Emily Davies & Girton College"


It is very important as we should have delivery of these sheets at the earliest possible moment and we should very much appreciate your getting them away to The Ship Binding Co. in the same time as you did the Third Impression. We are to-day instructing Messrs. Spalding & Hodge to deliver to you 16 reams of paper and we understand it will be in your hands by Monday afternoon. Perhaps you will let us hear from you by return of post as regards delivery.


Yours faithfully, | The Hogarth Press | [word is cut off at bottom of page]
