Dear Mrs. Viguers,
It is very good of you to increase my payment again. As you know, I have never asked for an increase or even hinted that an increase might be in order for I know that The Horn Book is not a vast money-making concern and because my return for the work I do is, in any case, chiefly the pleasure of my association with the good people of the magazine.
Consequently, I hope you will be able to assure me, for the sake of conscience, that this increase (from an original payment of $25 to the present one of $65) does not seriously affect the magazine budget, and --- if it turns out that the general prosperity of the magazine is increasing --- that others are also sharing in the benefits and that I am not receiving favored treatment.
