If you will send me your M.S. I will try it on other publishers with pleasure. Collins, Arthur Barker, Harrap, Robert Hale, Michael Joseph, Chatto, Iver Nicholson are the ones I know best. Who would you prefer me to try it on Arthur Barker is a good man and likes things that are a bit out of the ordinary...”, 1 side A4, no place, 19th August
