Scope and content

Apologises for bothering Lascelles again; hopes this will be the last time. Is sending the new draft of the contract [for the "Annual of New Poetry"] from Constables, with their suggested alterations; the publishers have largely accepted the contributors' suggestions. Lists the few differences: a clause forbidding anthologizing elsewhere during the year; a clause allowing the publishers to sell left-over copies after the first year; and the absence of the clause binding the contributors to go on publishing with them. As for American copyright, has heard from Wilfrid [Gibson] who says he could not contribute if they acquired it, since he has already sold the American serial rights of his poems for the "Annual"; since Gordon [Bottomley] is also not bothered about getting it, and neither Lascelles, nor Constables themselves seem not to be concerned, the idea should probably be dropped. Hopes to hear good news about Catherine.
