I assume it is to you that I should write in relation to Hogarth Press matters. We have for some time been acting for C.H.B. Kitchin, as you may perhaps know. The question has arisen of the earlier books with Hogarth, which, of course, have long been out of print. These are, according to our records, as follows:
THE SENSITIVE ONE
CRIME AT CHRISTMAS
DEATH OF MY AUNT
I am wondering whether you inten<d> to reprint in the immediate future? If not, we should be glad if the rights might revert. I think you will find that the agreements provide for six months' notice in the usual way, but if you have no plans for bringing them out again in the immediate future, perhaps we could waive that?
Yours, | David [signature]
