Both letters 1p., 4to. Both in good condition, on lightly aged and creased grey paper. Both addressed to Wortham at 75 Courtfield Gardens, London SW5. Letter One: Weeks writes that he has received a letter from Leland Hayward, Inc., 'inquiring whether any steps have been taken to arrange for the sale of the motion-picture rights of CHINESE GORDON [published in England as 'Gordon: An intimate Portrait']'. He plans to 'send off to them proofs [sic] sheets of the book as soon as they are received from the press'. He will relay news of any offer to Wortham by cable, and no offer will be accepted without Wortham's agreement. 'But in the meantime, would you please let me know at once if your English agent has control of the motion-picture rights, for I naturally wish to avoid any conflict.' Letter Two: He takes pleasure in sending Wortham reviews which 'took the leading position in both of our more important literary supplements. Such favorable notices have, of course, done their part to help the sale of the volume. Unfortunately the book trade is at such a low ebb that the effect is not nearly so profitable as it might have been before times became so lean.' He concludes by reporting that 986 copies have been sold. Weeks's papers are now in the Harry Ransom Center, University of Texas. N° de ref. de la librería 14292
