CHAPTER VI.
Presenting Mss. to a Publishing House for Publication.
Selling Outright. Royalties.
If the author and composer feel that they are not pre­pared to publish and handle their composition personally and to achieve success, there is always the other medium— the regular publisher of music.
Compositions to be presented to a publisher should be expertly arranged or edited, and neatly written in proper form. A brief letter should accompany your Mss., couched in terms similar to the following:
Messrs. Jones & Smith,
New York City.
Dear Sirs: Enclosed herewith please find Ms. of my
composition entitled "................," which I desire
to place with your firm on royalty. Kindly give same your attention and consideration, and if available for your catalogue, advise me and send contracts for my signa­ture. If unavailable, return Ms. for which I enclose neces­sary postage.
Very truly yours,
John Blank.
