lose it after having worked so hard and so triumphantly over the county.

The "ad." for the cookery book from Hunter came yesterday. You are certainly "Johnny on the Spot", sending in an ad. even before you hear from me about them. It seems the Wests who had the ads. in charge first, broke their contract--or rather she broke hers because of ill health, and he was too much engrossed with other business to continue her work. So here were we high and dry, fifty books sold outright, and orders from thirty states, and no book on the market. It was certainly disheartening. at first, but we knew the deal must be put through, so we dicided to ask the cities outside of Richmond to be responsible for at least five pages (each) of ad., or for three, if five were not possible. The rates are: $50 per full page; $30 for half page; $16 for quarter page.

We are telling the other cities that if any one wants the job on percentage, she can have it personally, 25% for each ad. secured, or she can turn that in to the local league, or it can be turned in and credited on the quota of the local league sending in the pages. The person who secures the ads. is supposed to collect for them upon publication, turn in the full amount, and then receive the commission.

Please keep an account of all you get, we will do, likewise, of course. And, if you should not have secured the three or five pages by the time yo are leaving for the university, please turn the job over to someone who will work while you are away, as it is imperative we get the ads. in and the book on the market as soon as is possible. I hope, however, you can get the pages before you leave, for I know of no one better calculated to do it.

Many thanks for the housewives magazine, and Mrs. Mathews fine article.

We do hope you can arrange to get to the board meeting and then join your folks on Sunday. It would not be a real board meeting without you.

Much love from all of us and the hope of seeing you soon.

Yours, Edith
