Typed Letter Signed about making money as a writer

Kingsland, Shipley: 1914.

2 pages, 10 x 8 inches, Kingsland, Shipley, September 5, 1914, revealing his pay scale based on the length and quality of his projects, in part: "...I am doing highly paid expert work, for 100 pounds, that is, at the rate of 20 pounds per thousand. He is not bound to pay it unless he likes, and I will not do it for less. It is true that the 'London' only paid me 50 pounds an article. I was not then doing expert work in a matter where very few other people could compete with me. I was giving them an article of only general interest at the moment, and I think 50 pounds was perfectly good pay for it. If I had known that the 'London' belonged to Harmsworth I would, of course, not have sold it; because I made it a strict rule never to touch Harmsworth money..." Small pin hole in the upper left corners from stapling; very good(-) condition.

Prolific Anglo-French writer whose Catholic faith had a strong impact on his works.
