Notecard to Lord Gorell about Small, Maynard & Co.
This notecard was written by Arthur Conan Doyle from Windlesham, Crowborough, Sussex, to Ronald Barnes, 3rd Baron Gorell.
Dear Lord Gorell
Very many thanks. We used to put S & M's imprint on the books as well as our own, and we did sell some, but with no limited edition (500 or so of a 7/6 book) we found that the ... Bill + the 33 1/3 which we give + S & M's Commission came to a few pence more than we got for the book. However, the great thing is to get rid of them, and to take out in propaganda what we loose in trade, so I mean to approach them again.
