R. W. Postgate Esq., 
4 Elm Close, N.W.4.


January 29th. 1931.


Dear Mr. Postgate,




Many thanks for your letter.  I think your suggestion with regard to the terms quite fair with the exception of the 5,000 copies.  Would you agree to begin the 15% royalty for the sale of 2,500?  If so shall we prepare an agreement for signature or would you prefer to send us one prepared by you?


Yours sincerely | LSW [signature]
