Eliza [Tabor] to her husband

Scope and Content

From Malvern to India. Encloses two letters from Macmillan, one mentioning terms for publication of Children's book. Recently rewritten from first draft made during hot weather in India and based on dream she had then. Glad to have a first class publisher but does not consider them generous, but '£35. Is not bad for a fortnight's work'. Takes more pride in this children's story than in her novels, as publishers accept novels more readily. Gives directions about rugs etc. to be brought home.
