Letter from The Hogarth Press to the Librairie Hachette (14/10/1936)




[[MS 2750/572/24]]


Librairie Hachette, 
Adelaide Street, 
Charing Cross, W.C.2.


14th October, 1936.




Dear Sirs,


In reply to your letter of October 12th, enclosing cheque for one guinea, are you not under some misapprehension? In April of this year, you wrote to us asking for permission to include a quotation from TO THE LIGHTHOUSE by Virginia Woolf in the 6th volume of L'Anglais Vivant, and we gave it. We have no record of any request for a reproduction of a passage from ALL PASSION SPENT, by V. Sackville-West, and we think it possible that there may have been some confusion. I enclose receipt herewith, and shall be glad to hear from you on the matter.


Yours faithfully, | THE HOGARTH PRESS, | MANAGER.
