Mr. Robt. Huckvale - President,
The Macmillan Co. of Canada Limited,
70 Bond St. - Toronto, Ont.
Dear Mr. Huckvale,
Our recent talk about the "Air-Force" releasing some of the it's personell [sic] was very timely. You have likely read, in the press, their policy.
Naturally I cannot say when I will be discharged; but I am making out the application forms immediately. I would appreciate it Mr. Huckvale, if you, as President of the firm, would send me a letter confirming the fact that you desire my services upon discharge.
Your idea that I should ready myself for a certain sales job gave me a great deal of satisfaction. It lets me know that you remember me and my work; and it speaks well for the future; because I shall start with the feeling that my employer appreciates progress.
It seems that I talk "money matters" to you often; but as Treasurer I suppose you expect that. However, I would consider it a favour if you would give my future financial remuneration some thought; so that when we come to discuss the case, we may have a foundation laid.
You may be interested to know that I finished the recent "Victory Loan" by making the greatest sale ever, on this camp. Let us hope we can continue such sales, but with Macmillan books, after the war.
