Dear Mr Grant Richards: I am glad that you are pleased with Dubliners. As for the terms you offer me I must say that perhaps it would be best for me to put myself in your hands. I am sure that you will deal with me as generously as you can. As a matter of fact my future work in which you seem to be interested is largely dependent on an improvement of my financial state. I have had little leisure, comfort or prospects for continuing it.

         I should like to know when you propose to publish the book, in what form and at what price. If you will let me know I can send you the last story I have written -- unless perhaps you have as superstitious an objection to the number thirteen as you seem to have with regard to Ireland and short stories in general.
