Jourdain returns Part II of Russell's paper. "Russell has written to offer us his Lowell lectures (popular on problems of philosophy). 64,000 words for £100. I accepted on my own responsibility, so please cable me if you agree. I think it would be a good thing and sell hugely. All is ready for press, and we ought to get it printed in Edinburgh and get it out by June (3 or 4,000 copies), when the lectures are delivered. Russell badly wants the money within a month. Could you send me a draft? Of course if you do not agree, I will pay R., but it would cripple my resources. Suppose the book costs £120 to print and bind, we ought to make £400 by it, as even R's technical books (12/6, 7/6 …) are often out of print; and he is in the centre of interest here and in America."
