Plomer writes to enclose his manuscript and thanks the press for allowing him to send it. He offers information on what he believes to be assets and drawbacks, particularly in terms of his own personal attributes and what he feels he can offer with his writing. Plomer reminds the press that with his submission of Turbott Wolfe, his writing should not be considered a work of art, nor as a collection box. He briefly talks about his feelings regarding his work at the trading post in Entumeni. Plomer also gives three conditions that should be considered if the press were to refrain from publishing his work. He discusses the manuscript's length, title page, end piece, quotations, and includes a note they might like to print.
