Dear Mr. Muir:

We beg to enclose herewith duplicate contracts for the publication of "Stickeen". Please sign them both, and return one to us.
We should have wished in this case, as in the case of "Our National Parks", to have offered you a royalty upon a sliding scale, but in view of the small size of this book and the necessarily low price at which it must be sold, a royalty of straight ten per cent has seemed to us an equitable arrangement, for while, owing to the small size of the book, the returns will necessarily be limited, the expenses involved in advertising and publicity are naturally as great as in the case of a book to sell at a higher price. Please believe that "Stickeen" is a story which we shall take particular pleasure and satisfaction in issuing, and that we shall make every effort to give it an appropriate embodiment and the widest possible circulation. Please believe us

Faithfully yours,
Houghton Mifflin Co
