More on Dorothy Sayers

As a followup to my previous post about Women at Universities and being curious about any links between Dorothy Sayer and her contemporary and better known author Virginia Woolf, I searched and found some interesting items, though not as much about the two of them as I had hoped. Were they friends? Did they correspond?

Here's an interesting piece from the Open Letters Monthly Arts and Literature Review: "Second Glance: Dorothy Sayers and the Last Golden Age" byJoanna Scutts.
And here's another from the Jesus Creed blog called "Before Women were Pastors" by Scot McKnight.

Does anyone know of links between Sayers and Woolf?

Short of visiting archives or rifling through online finding aids, there is "The letters of Virginia Woolf", a six volume set you can get through Summit (http://summit.orbiscascade.org/search/?searchtype=z&searcharg=9psu0+b1108698&searchscope=2&SORT=D&extended=0&SUBMIT=Search&searchlimits=&searchorigarg=z9psu0+b1108698)

I tried to browse the table of contents on Google Books, but no luck.

I came upon this blog because I asked the same question. My Sayers biography (the one by Brabazon) doesn't mention Woolf at all. Hard to believe there was no connection or evidence of awareness, since both had Oxbridge connections, were unusual literary characters etc.
