HenryB. L. Webb. Autograph letter signed, November 7, 1929, to “Dear Sirs.” Webb, in this two-page letter, again raises the issue of film rights for Precious Bane, and other novels by Mary Webb. He says that the 2,000 he had asked in exchange for a seven-year agreement on Precious Bane, was (in his view) adequate, but more than a film company had been willing to pay.
