Dear Mr. Smith,


We have had a request from Readers Union to supply them with about 5,000 copies of Death of the Moth in flat sheets to be printed on their own paper from their own quota.  I would be grateful if you could let me know what the imposition and machining charges would be if we finally come to an agreement with Readers Union.  You should assume there will be changes to be made in the prelims, but otherwise the text as is stands.


Yours sincerely,
