Sept: 28/[19]36


Dear Mr. Woolf,


Some weeks ago I wrote about an enquiry from Bulgaria concerning the translation of my "Complete Story of the L[eague] of N[ations]" from a Mr. Mishaikoff[?]*1. On recommendation from your office I asked Mr. Mishaikoff[?] to find a publisher, who might approach you. I enclose the result.


Will you kindly write to Mr. Tschipeff explaining that I have passed on his letter to you, & sending him the English copy for which he asks?


The delay since he wrote is due to my having been in Geneva till last night, & I have not replied to him.


Yours sincerely, | K[athleen].E[lizabeth]. Innes.





1.  Mr Mishaikoff is mentioned in "Twelfth Annual Report of the American Friends Service Committee" June 1st 1928 to May 31st 1929. Page 8 Heading: "Some Places Where English, Irish, and American Friends (Quakers) Are Interested in Furthering The Spirit of Good-Will Among Men."
