TELEGRAPHIC ADDRESS] LONDON, W.C.
Office of MANAGING DIRECTOR,
April I7th, ^2
I am sending you herewith soma of the more iis^ortant
clippings from London Papers, which I think you will find
I have accidental! become aware of a fact* which I
did not know before, namely, that in other cases Messrs Macmillar;
have taken only the American, or in some cases, only the
English rights, the books in question being published by other
firms on one side or the other. Under these circumstances I
hope that you can arrange 30 that we can have the English rights
of whatever book.you may give to them, in accordance with your
former promise. I did not suggest this to you before, because
I was not aware that there were cases in which that house only
published on one side. Under the circumstances, however, (unless
you have pacifically agreed that they shall have the English
publication as well as the American)there is no reason at all
why you should not Inform them that you desire the English
publication of all your works to be in our hands.
Please believe that I em not speaking in my own
interest, or the interest of thi3 house only,when I say that I
believe It will be immansely more to your advantage to avoid,
