This letter was written by Arthur Conan Doyle to Mr. A. P. Watt, his literary agent.


Letter

My dear Watt

The Holmes business seems quite in order now. I hope to have handed in most of the stories before October — so we can safely contract to do the first by that date.

Newnes had better pay on publication as they do now. I should like them to have the book also.

I agree about 'Raffles Haw' — better leave it.

With all kind regards

Yours very truly

Arthur Conan Doyle.
