Alleluia! I think you've done it!
I have been waiting fo*- some weeks to receive
from the Maeraillan Company the proof (or U.S.) of the "Kempton
T7ace Letters" which I understood we should publish this Spring.
I have written them twice about it and meanwhile have been
holding back the "Daughter of the Snow»
5he "Kempton Hace Letters" have not arrived: but
suddenly there has come to hand "The People of the Abyss" and
it is bul&y
now you know that I am working for you: not for
any book of yours, but for you - l$r, J. London as a whole; and
I believe you trust me. I have gena through "The People of
the Abyss" and have marked scsae 30 errors (I mean typographical
errors, slips whereby you have put Americanisms in the mouths
of English tramps etc) and am sending the corrections to.
They ask for each book (the K*^. Lottery and the
People)the same terms, via:- 1Z\% royalty and 0250 advance.
