My dear Sir

On the otherside I send you a statement of the actual expenses of Fritz Muller & what the Vol will produce, if sold at 6/—

I shall wait to hear, if you agree to 6/— before I publish.

By this post I also send you a copy, so that you will see the thickness. The lettering in all other copies will be as you wished.

I hope to send off your other copies tomorrow evening.

Yrs faithfully | Robt Cooke
