Description

Letter from the sculptor Henry Moore to Alan Cole regarding a request to write a short article in a journal.

Inscription

[typed] 29th October 1975.

Dear Mr. Cole,

Thank you for your letter and for sending me some of the Society's headed paper for my own use.

About requesting me to write a short article for the journal; - I am terribly behind with all my work in the studio, - and writing for me is such a great effort, and takes me so long, I am afraid I cannot promise to do anything for you, (even if I said I would do it, it might be months before I finally did it).

The only suggestion I can make, if you wish, you could reprint in the journal the letter I wrote to the Times, 28th January, at the beginning of the whole affair, (and perhaps some of the other interesting letters too).

I hope we shall hear something from the Minister of the Environment before too long.

with best wishes.

Yours sincerely,

[signed] Henry Moore
