Alexander MacLehose: Letter One: 4to, 1 p. Good, on slightly aged and lightly creased paper. He is sending a copy of his catalogue, 'which has reached me from the printers to-day'. He has 'sent a copy also to the firm'. Would like Wilson's 'advice as to whether "Memories of the Months" should have a paper jacket. The binders have sent me a nice cellophane cover, which shows the rather handsome binding. Would there be any objection, from a selling point of view, to a cellophane cover in place of the ordinary paper jacket?' Letter Two: 12mo, 2 pp. Good, on slightly aged and lightly creased paper. First page cancelled with diagonal pencil line. He is sending prospectuses of a couple of named books. 'Unfortunately these have all been printed off, so it is not possible to include your imprint.' He will be 'glad to send round my office-boy to stamp your imprint on these prospectuses from your rubber stamp.' Asks Wilson to give him 'a ring if the proposal suits you'. James Maclehose: 12mo, 2 pp. Good, on lightly aged paper with crease and short closed tear to one margin (not affecting text). He has reported to his friend Wilson's 'views as to Children's Circulating Libraries and she writes me today to say that she has definitely decided to abandon the idea - a wise decision as it seems to me.'
