FG Dear Mr. Greenslet1

I forgot to ask you in my letter whether there isn't a statement due me about this time of year? I have had none since the early spring. Did John Murray4 make no report5 at all of sales in England6? Surely there must have been some. I wish your book keeper had as much zeal about the poor highbrow author's shillings and pence as Paul Reynolds7 has!

Faithfully W. S. C.ather
