Dear Mr. Ravage:

We have enjoyed Laszlo Dormandi’s Fievre Tropical though I am sorry to say that we have decided against making you an offer for American rights. The story is well told but it seems to us that this is a rather minor novel and one which would be difficult to publish successfully in this country.

One signature has been repeated, by the way, and one is missing in the copy which you sent us.

We are returning the book under separate cover. Thank you for giving us a chance to read it.


Austin G. Olney
