A close up of text on a white background

Sent my manuscript of “The Teaching of the Prayer Book” to Longmans & Co asking whether they would give me £150 for half copyright to be deducted from profits, or publish on Royalty or publish on Commission and on what terms. About a week afterwards I received a polite letter from them declining to entertain it at all, as they thought it would not be remunerative, and returning the manuscript.
