Viscount Cecil 
16, South Eston Place, S.W.1.


February 11th 1936






Dear Sir,


There is an unearned balance of £18.13.8d in respect of royalties on the above book, and as the sales have now dropped to less than six copies in the year, we propose, with your acquiescence, not to render any further royalty statements unless or until the above mentioned balance has been wiped off. You will realize the immense amount of work entailed in rendering accounts in respect of books which have practically ceased to sell, and we should be very glad if you would allow us to make the arrangement suggested.


Yours faithfully, | THE HOGARTH PRESS. | MANAGER.
