Dear Sir,


I have to thank you for your letter. I should be quite ready to give you the right to translate IMPERIALISM AND CIVILISATION into Japanese if you can get a publisher, but I should, of course, require to know what trems [sic] the publisher offered before I could definitely agree.


Yours sincerely, | LSW [signature] | Director.
