We send one complete Album to-day by Mail Train carriage paid & you ought to receive the package tomorrow.
[p. 2] The whole affair is sent so that you can judge of it in its entirety; Cover title Contents &c &c -
As to the "Lange Leizen" being there, it is so by the choice you yourself approved, for we can assure you very sincerely that no change whatever would be made from what you had decided. You may remember, in fact, that we really did want (& asked to have included) the Battersea Reach purchased by Mr Potter Palmer. You however decided against it even although it would have been of much [p. 3] commercial advantage to have had it included, & we had said to Mr Palmer we should ask you to include it.
All the titles were, as you may remember submitted for your inspection & approval & no single item was changed or modified since you approved it.
The Album is a publication in which you have by right to choose what is to go in & being entirely for you we have not [p. 4] interfered at all. As you will be aware we could not do this with every artist or every publication, but with one who knows so well what is best we leave the choice to him!
As per the Albums for yourself, will you please formulate your request & we will see what can be done. They will have to come out of the 100 & we had not calculated you would require more than one or two -
Regretting that you have had to wire & recommending you to post London letters before 4.30 in your district
Yours very truly
