One page, 4to, creasing and sl. marked, text clear and complete: Thank you for your letter together with your writings. I don't give an opinion of other people's work, and I'll tell you why, in the past I have been wrong, and on pone occasion felt very responsible. | The best advice I can give you is to send it to a reputable publisher and ask him to get one of his professional readers to give you an honest opinion. These are the boys with the power to say 'yes' or 'no'. | I do hope you understand."
