Ahmed Ali, Esq., 
56, Eardley Crscent, S.W.5.


Dear Mr. Ali,


Yet Life Goes On


Our printers have raised the following queries about words occuring in your manuscript and I should be glad if you would be so kind as to let us have your comments:



1. Mohallah (locality) - roman with cap. - translation in paragraphs. 
2. Kotha - italic - translation as footnote. 
11. Sherwani - italic with cap. 
19. sherwani - roman and lower case. 
259. doli - roman and lower case. 
260. majzoob - italic and lower case. 
- sentences in dialect (page 260) - roman or italic?


I believe, also, that you raised the question of changing the title with Mr. Lehmann. Perhaps you will get in touch with him on this point?


Yours sincerely, | THE HOGARTH PRESS, | Manager.*1
