Dear Biographee,


In planning the Third Edition of the World Who's Who of Women,I have received a recommendation for your own illustrated biography to be included. I am therefore enclosing a personal biographical questionnaire which I invite you to complete and return to me, together with two small photographs, as requested. Your biography will then be prepared by the Editors and a typescript will be sent to you for correction.

The World Who's Who of Women is, so far as I can discover, the only work of its kind in the world and is rapidly building up a unique prestige. 

The outstandingly famous women of the world are, of course, included biographically - and for the most part, pictorially. We are very anxious indeed to make the third edition as comprehensive as possible and we hope that you will co-operate with our request to return your completed questionnaire. 

There is no charge or fee of any kind for the publication of your biography, nor are you under any obligation to purchase a copy. The completion of the enclosed questionnaire carries no further involvement unless, of course, you wish to purchase. In this event, there are most advantageous terms for biographees, including individual air shipment of copies to all addresses outside Europe. 

I am much looking forward to receiving your completed questionnaire which is sent to you by Air Mail.

With thanks and best wishes.
