Dear Hedda,

Received today your letter Oct.9 also Avitas with the same date, about the book. You down right and I wouldn't let him do it the way he thinks. So I'm writing him a letter now, which is more for you. I don't want to be brutal so I'm addressing the letter dear Victor but it's for you so you'll know what I want and keep an eye on him. Make a copy of the letter or take notes and give him the original. 

Now, it seems the publisher isn't bad: Dwell, seam & Pierce. One of them, Victor says. is an [[strikethrough]] public [[/strikethrough]] editor of the New Yorker and they published a book of Steig drawings
