Internal note from Leonard Woolf to Barbara Hepworth (07/04/1944)



[[MS 2750/557/1/10]] [incorrect MS no. on the original]




Miss Hepworth


1.            I have written enclosed letter to Longmans. If the book is an anthology, we must change fees.


2.            Haunted House I think it is all right to send only a few copies (under 10) provided you inform Harcourt, Brace. They have agreed to this before.


3.            [two vertical lines drawn on the left of the number] Boots. If the packer is convinced that he packed the right number and our stock is correct, I think we should insist upon payment.


4.            I return Defence Bond document signed


5.            I will deal with Mecklenburgh Square.

[*sent 12/4/44*] I enclose letter form W J Strachan. Could you send him from me (1) a copy of Three Guineas ordinary edition or one of Mrs Woolf’s novels with a jacket by Mrs Bell, a copy of V Sackville-West Collected Poems, Admiral’s Widown or one of the recent novels, and one of New Writing?
