Content DescriptionNews of the meeting with Jake Zeitlin [bookseller] who wants to buy all of her D.H. Lawrence manuscripts on behalf of the University of Texas, Austin.

Feels that the Viking Press and Collins "never realised the significance of Lawrence's work...You thought he was dead long ago, but he is only beginning to come into his own now". Discusses the difference between English and American publishers, and feels that American publishers "cut up' their authors work into little bits". Thinks they should have charged more for Lawrence's books.
