OXFORD UNIVERSITY ENGLISH CLUB.

May 2nd University College

Oxford.

Dear Mrs Woolf.

I ought long ago to have replied to your letter but was compelled to await the meeting of my Committee which took place this afternoon.

I am extremely grateful to you for promising to come down on the 18th of May. Perhaps you would be kind enough to let me know soon what the title of your paper will be.

Shall you be staying with Mr. Fisher at New College or shall we arrange something for you.

Yours sincerely,

Aubrey Herbert,

Secretary.

Aubrey Herbert (1905-1981) was also President of the Oxford Union, a university-wide debating society, in 1928. See letter 14 as well. Evidently Woolf had refused Mr. Herbert's first invitation to come speak to the English Club; see her letter dated March 1, 1927 as printed in Virginia Woolf Miscellany 53 (spring 2000): 2.
