Letter from Edward Thompson to Margaret West (27/03/1935)



University of Reading, Special Collections

Thompson refers to the letter sent by Elstob [MS 2750/487/29] stating that he won't write back directly, explains that it was suppressed from being published until other writers including Leonard Woolf persuaded him to publish. Although he thinks the writer of the letter could have found this out himself, so he does not think he is entitled to the information. Thompson feels that if The Hogarth Press will pass on information they should leave out the author's names and allows the press to tell Elstob that the book is suppressed in India as are some of his other writing
