I return Higham's letter. I imagine we could get Kitchin back if we wanted him as he must have been a complete failure. Crime at Christmas and Death of my Aunt would probably both be worth reprinting if we could afford paper. We did very well with these two books: Death of my Aunt was published 1929 and sold 2800 in first 6 months and the other published 1934 sold about 2200 in first 6 months. Death of my Aunt is referred to as a detective "classic". But I dont [sic] imagine that we can reprint this side of 1949 and he will never do any thing [sic] good again, so that rather reluctantly I suppose we must abandon the books.
I enclose letter from Rosinski. I think we can now well disengage ourselves from him?
