Letter from Leonard Woolf to The Communist Bookshop (16/06/1925)

The Communist Bookshop 
16 King Street 


16 June, 1925


Dear Sir,


With reference to your letter of 13 June regarding "Empire and Commerce in Africa", I am negotiating with the Labour Research Department with regard to taking over the stock of this book, but I have not yet heard definitely from them that my offer has been accepted.


If my offer is accepted, I should be glad to discuss your proposal with you, though it is doubtful whether I could let you have as many as 500 copies, the whole stock being only about 550. I will communicate again with you as soon as I hear from the L.R.D.


Yours faithfully | Leonard Woolf [signature]
