Sir,-Thank you for your letter. May I take this opportunity of saying 
how delighted I am with The Imprint, and not least with the Editor's

plan be adopted and, therefore, the system should be applicable to the small 
business as well as to the large. I think, therefore, that travelling expenses, 
partners' salaries, and interest on capital should be kept outside other prime 
costs. It is delightful, of course, to think that the partners should have ade-
