My Dear Sir


I have corrected and
returned to Mr Dorrell the
first four pages of the book ;
and told him you would
direct him as to the number
to be printed.


I would have 1500 struck
off in the first place , and
if the printers could manage
to keep the type standing for
two months or so after the
date of publication — by which





time the probable success of the
book would be pretty well
ascertained — it would be an
advantage . If you cannot
arrange this with them , then
2000 may be struck off. I
have my little doubt about this
number being disposed of


Believe me my Dear Sir


[Y very] truly


S Smiles


J. Murray Esq




Smiles, S,
