Content DescriptionThanks him for his letter of 14 December and reports that Curtis Brown have now sent Tal a draft agreement for signature; hopes to hear from him again when he has received replies from his sister-in-law [Else Jaffe] and Kippenberg [of Insel-Verlag]; asks if he has seen a long article on 'Lady Ch' in 'Les Nouvelles Litteraires' No.374 Dec 14 which compares it with Martin Maurice 'Amour, Terre inconnue'; is critical of both authors; sends him two cuttings about Katherine Mansfield mentioning he has tried for many years to find a German publisher for her work; mentions having collaborated with Emma Bonn, a freelance journalist and fellow admirer of K.M. for the publication in Frankfurter Zeitung; hopes as a result Insel-Verlag might now reconsider publishing.

Tells him he has been commissioned by Kippenberg [of Insel-Verlag] to write a pamphlet on the modern English novel and, in particular, on authors he is publishing; asks, therefore, for specified details of himself and his work and future plans; copy unsigned.
