Dear Sirs,

My brother, Mr. Bertrand Russell, being now in prison, I have to deal with his correspondence, and have received your letter of May 23.2 I have been able to consult him upon it, and he is very much astonished at its contents, and he points out that he wrote the book3 at your request, and that you knew his view on Socialism, and could therefore hardly be surprised at it. He has asked Messrs. George Allen & Unwin to write to you and make a suggestion, as a result of which he would not suffer by your unwillingness to publish it.

Yours faithfully,
RUSSELL
