Beschreibung:

Typed Letter Signed ("Virginia Woolf"), 1 p, 4to, 52 Tavistock Square, London, October 22, 1930, on personal stationery, light folds. "I myself prefer To the Lighthouse to Mrs Dalloway...," Woolf writes to an unidentified fan. In part: "Of course I am not so foolish as to resent your intrusion, but save for thanking you for your enthusiasm, and hoping for its survival, I have very little to say. It is generally held that Miss Sackville West was the original of Orlando; and as a writer I always bow to the wisdom of critics." She alludes to On Being Ill, or perhaps Street Haunting—"it is a reprint of an article published a year or two ago in the Criterion; and is now, I hear, sold out"—and closes "I once bought books myself and so sympathise with your enthusiasm; but I have now no room for more." See illustration.
