Call Number: MSS 14 , Series II

Scope and Contents

Letter discusses putting the manuscript of Edward and His Marvellous Telescope in the post that afternoon and sending it to another publisher, Farrar Straus. Mr. Benn explains that they are currently working on The Secret Harbour (another work by Sam Smith) and how he would like to complete that project before embarking on another. He is, however, very interested in the concept of Edward and hopes to make it a companion book to the The Secret Harbor after "a good deal of modification."
