My dear Mr. Huntington-Wilson
I was awaiting a possible communication from Mr. Leon before acknowledging your letter of Nov. 24. I have given instructions to the manufacturing department to have the corrections made in the next printing of the book. Yes, the “prove” on page 186 should be “proves”. If “paper money, and bank money or credit money” on page 118 could be considered as a collective subject, then “offers” would be allowable. Such forms as “There is a hen and chickens in the yard” are regarded as correct by certain authorities. So there might be a loop-hole for us here.
I shall be glad to make a record of any further plate changes you send in, and I am happy that you are pleased with the book.
Very truly yours,
