Dear Lorne:

The only two magazines in England which 'might,' would be the Mercury and the Bookman. But there's hardly a ghost's chance of getting an article on a Canadian writer in an English magazine. Most of the magazines are devoted to the 'new' stuff and are run by cliques and claques.

Sincerely
Ned


Bookman
Not to be confused with the Canadian Bookman.

Canadian writer
Pierce was hoping to publish an essay on Pratt in a British journal.
