Dear Mr Grant Richards
: I am glad that you are pleased
. 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
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.
