My dear Macnair
Your letter dated Aug 25th just to hand. Previous to its receipt I had wired you regarding the Trey of Hearts and in further explanation thereof I beg to inform you that at the present time I get all my programme from Greens, Glasgow. They are I am sorry to say living up to their bad reputation - being altogether unsatisfactory. In my programme and showing here every Monday I have the Trey of Hearts, Episode 2 showing tonight - and as I have the story published in the local paper - one episode per week - I am as you can well understand unwilling to give it up - on the other hand I am determined to stop hiring from Green's - and as they will not hire me the Trey of Hearts only - I wired asking if you could supply it - commencing next Monday showing her with episode 3. If you could do this I can get the rest of my programme elsewhere or if you can supply me with a good service at £3 per three changes, i.e. 10/- 1000ft I can give you a trial. I have received a letter from Mr. Jeffrey regarding the proposed agency question in Dundee, and I am writing him further today with reference to this matter. In the event of satisfactory arrangements being come to between you and Mr, Jeffrey I should be pleased to hear from you where I am likely to come in. I expect your reply wire either today or tomorrow. You might also please quote per return what figure you can supply The Master Key at showing here on Fridays and Saturdays - commencing say Sept. 13th week.
Len and Lena arrived all in order yesterday being a dancing act. They will not be able to work a fortnight here and you might please wire me another act for week commencing Sept. 6th, one week only. I am already booked up for Sept. 13th and am open again for week Sept. 20th. Regarding you’re a/c for topicals - the three Gaumonts Graphics sent you on Saturday I suppose are the ones that ought to have been here on weeks 16th and 23rd Aug. However I will write in detail later. I note however that you are to dispatch those topicals per post after today. Please send me Len & Lena's contract.
Awaiting the favour of your reply
