The Clarendon Press, Oxford.—Yesterday’s discussion and McKerrow’s letter have clarified the situation (the relationship between the Press and the Review of English Studies).



P 4509

The Clarendon Press, Oxford
15 January 1924

My dear McKerrow,

Yesterday’s discussion seemed to me to be perfectly clear, though no doubt more would have had to be said if the participants or any of them had been dull of understanding. But I am glad to have your letter of 14 January, {1} which puts it in a nutshell. You leave the door tantalisingly ajar; I shall not shove it, but if anyone else should want to, he would probably know what he would find on the other side.

Yours sincerely
R. W. Chapman

R. B. McKerrow Esq.,
Messrs Sidgwick and Jackson, Ltd.,
3 Adam Street, Adelphi, W.C.2.
