You recently gave permission to Messers Constable & Co. to include, in a book by me about Henry James, certain passages from Henry James at Work by Theodora Bosanquet.
As miss Bosanquet's book appears not to have been published in the U.S.A., Messers Charles Scriber's Sons have asked me to inquire whether you will kindly extend your permission to cover the inclusion of the same passages in the edition
of my book which they propose to publish in America.
