Dear Madam,


The demand for "In Our Town" has now virtually ceased.  We have still 101 copies in stock.  May we have your permission to remainder or pulp 91 keeping 10 in stock against possible future orders? 


We have not sold any since June 1930 [ 2 words struck through printed over 2 illeg. words] [*June 1930*].
