Letter To Prospective Book Publisher Application For Agency

Shyam Book Agency
7, Shyamacharan Dey St.
Kolkata - 9
The Maneger
Oxford Publication
Park Street

Dear Sir/Madam,
With reference to your advertisement in "The Times of India" some time ago that you require an active agent for securing orders for books. I offer my services for the job.

My long experience and good connections with dealers embolden me to assure you if you favour me with your confidence it will be to our mutual good. I am representing many leading publishers. I have five travellers and three shops in the city, all of whom would push the sale of your publications.

All my suppliers are offering me 12%. commission and I would expect the same from you also.

I shall be glad to hear it my proposal is acceptable to you, and if so, would you kindly indicate the general conditions and terms upon which you would be willing to negotiate with me? I can give you references of M/s Orient Longmans who would provide you with any information you might desire concerning my status, etc.

Please let me hear your views on these proposals. I look forward to you for a reply.

Yours faithfully,
Shyama Prasad Dey
