Dear Miss Daves:

I meant to write you long ago as per your request about foreign rights but that six hour flu, got me so badly that a trained nurse got a share of your lovely check.... and earned it. 

I understand it is customary to receive financial compensation for foreign rights ..or others than sold with the article at the time of sale. If you feel that I should be compensated, I could of course use the cash. On the other hand, I leave it entirely up to you as I am a little known writer, which of course is being remedied. 

In case you feel the same way too, I hereby give the Conde Nast Publications Inc., full right to reprint "Old Ladies of Forty" in Great Britain.

P.S. Didja discover how beautiful words are to: "All the Things You are?" Poetry! Yummy.
