Mr. Nakano Dear Mr. Nakano, I am in due receipt of your letter of the 9th instant and I am grateful to you for all that you have said for me.

Hayagriva and Upendra My dear Hayagriva, With reference to our conversation on the phone, I may inform you that the printer Howard is not interested in hot type printing, because, when I met him last, I asked him whether he can print in sharp linotype. So, if he agrees, he must sign the letter which I have handed over to you and then the manuscript;one chapter after another;should be handed over...

I would therefore request...
