[London, 7 July 1873]

Friend Bliss:

Finally concluded not to go to Paris. So you can take the Herald letters & put them in a pamphlet along with the enclosed article about the Jumping Frog in French, (which is entirely new) & then add enough [along side of paper: I enclose prefatory remarks, "To the Reader." You can mention, if you choose, that the Frog article has not been printed before] of my old sketches to make a good fat 25 cent pamphlet & let it slide -- but don't charge more than 25 c[ents] nor less. If you haven't a Routledge edition of my sketches to select from you will find one at my house or Warner's.

I don't expect to write any more Herald letters at present.

Yrs Truly
