Mr. Worth: For some time I have been correspond with our sales representatives with the object of determining what quantity we should print of the first edition of our newpublication, Modern Science of the World. The estimates I received from them varied widely, as usual, and most of them were unsatisfactory and undependable.
On the basis of our past experience in publishingand marketing a book of this character, I believe we should be able to sell 50,000 copies in the first year.
Could you be responsible, Mr. Worth, for placing a manufacturing order for this quantitypromptly? In addition, please place an immediate order for 200,000 copies of the attached circular describing the features of the book. Have them delivered to Mr. Smith, head of the advertisingdepartment, at our Franklin Street office when they are ready.
Thank you very much for your cooperation. Lydia C. Long
