I will ask Robertson's manager about this.
However I am afraid that publishers will not
push a work so well in which they have
only a percentage interest as one in which they
have a capital interest. I shall also write
and ask Robertson's manager re Holts New York
that is as to exactly what has been done.

I will with pleasure write a short
paper in the Orestes Blood feud for the
Victoria Review on the understanding that
you are in it with me. I will even make
it by AWH & LF. I now propose that as you
have my rough notes by you that you draft
out your ideas in connection with mine and
send me the lot - for I am not sure that I
have copies of all I sent on that point ( the
blood feud) - I will then do my best
to work it up into final form. I can if you
like to put it so in want of your classical
knowledge on this subject as I now doubt
the soundness of mine. I shall like to do
the paper in this way - and I don't think
I will do it any other way. The partnership
is formed and I don't feel inclined
to start in business alone. Mean while
as there will be a couple of months before I
can receive the rough draft from you
