Responding to Hartley's letter asking about some biographical details and also about the importance of her education to her writing. She writes “of course there have been many fine writers from all sorts of backgrounds short of the usual high education. But I think it may be safe enough to suggest that what it is generally considered a “good” education can help to aboid a huge waste of time as well as perhaps some misdirected literary efforts. of course you could find exception to this, as to most generalizations, but on the whole I think it holds up”.
