In Collection: The James Joyce - Paul Léon Papers, 1930-1940.
Description: I spoke with Mr J this morning over the telephone when I rang him up to inform him that I had received 15 short galleys of "Lord Carlow's [private version] corrected". He asked me to point out for the third time that Lord Carlow never had anything whatever to do with the version in question which was printed in The Hague and distributed by Faber & Faber in England and to add that, so far from expediting the work of printing, the English printer has apparently taken 6 weeks to do what a French printer would do in a couple of days. He also asked me to transmit unto you the following: After my receipt of yours of the – he cabled to his son (at present visiting N.Y.) to telephone Mr Huebsch on this subject. His son replied by cable to say that Mr H considered publication in July unreasonable but would await the arrival in New York early in February of Mr Morley of your firm in order to confer with him before deciding. Mr Joyce wishes me to remind you in view of this proposed conference, that Mr Huebsch is the person who always believed that a publication of Ulysses in the United States was impracticable and that Mr Morley is the person who believed, even after Mr Huebsch had been proved by events to be wrong that a publication of Ulysses in England was also impracticable. Mr Joyce is perfectly well aware that the 4th July is the American National holiday (five members of his family owe their Christian names to this fact, including his son) and it is precisely for this reason, among others, that he wishes his book to be published in England on that day and in the U.S.A. on the eve of that day, his fathers [sic] birthday. If no intelligent effort will be made to comply with his wishes he sees no use in continuing to work night and day as he has done and plans to leave for Switzerland after his own birthday (2 February) for a holiday of several months, resuming work on his book in the autumn.
