Follow other instructions as to format, printing, price 1200 at 3/6," etc. Then “ Reggie suggests' syndicating' the poem in America ... a large sum could be got. ... Don't you think I had better give up Pinker? ... I enclose an absurd document to enable you to exercise rights ... absurd—because it has no stamp—and I have always

believed in stamps. . . . You said you will be publishing The Ideal Husband'—that is delightful of you. The MS. is in Lewis Waller's possession.
