My dear Paul.

     When Irving Stone was in here I saw him on occasion. He certainly has done careful research & I am most impatient to see the book. He told me he wanted to have someone in [?] tanding with you as to give you an interest in motion picture rights. After discussing the matter I told him I thought 7 1/2% was quite fair.

letter expresses his understand. If it?s OK with you send it to him at Encino California? after signing it & having it OK'd by your mother.
