re: Estate of Sir Hugh Walpole dec’[ease]d
Thank you for your letter of May 11.
A letter to a Modern Novelist 1s. In the contract for this pamphlet, we paid Sir Hugh Walpole an advance of £10 on account of 10% of the published price on the first 3000 copies sold, and 15% thereafter. Actually the advance has not yet been earned and there is still a small balance of £1.7.1d. due to us, before any royalties are due to the estate. The book is in print and sells a few copies a year.
In the case of the Omnibus Volume of The Hogarth Letters, we paid the authors 1d. per copy sold. This book is now out of print.
We have not published any other books by Sir Hugh.
Yours faithfully, | for The Hogarth Press Ltd.
