Woolf in the World: A Pen and a Press of Her Own

Virginia Woolf Letter to Vita Sackville-West

Four letters from Virginia Woolf to Vita Sackville-West were recently discovered in a secret drawer of Vita’s ancient oak writing table at Sissinghurst Castle. This spring, Smith College purchased the fourth letter from this cache. In this letter Woolf talks about the Jewish refugees Mela and Robert Spira, and the perils of traveling by automobile and airplane.
