                        Many subscriptions expired with Newsletter 4, and we have had to
bill quite
                        a few readers who, as contributors of material or colleagues to whom we owe
                        scholarly favors, we’d much rather send complimentary copies.  The response to
                        our dunning notice has been gratifying, indicating that our readers understand
                        the need for their support.  It was not necessary to raise the price of sub-
                        scriptions, except for overseas subscribers who wish air delivery.
                        The supply of back copies is just about exhausted. We are now investigating
                        the possibility of producing an offset edition of volume 1 for those newer sub-
                        scribers who did not receive it.  There is also a chance that increasing demand
                        for the Newsletter will mean going offset in the future.
                        For volume II, we have received some support from the University of Cali-
                        fornia, providing eidotiral assistance; and the English Department office staff
                        has taken over the task of production.  Our existence for the present academic
                        year is therefore assured, but after the University grant expires in June we
                        will probably have to find some other source of aid.  This will almost certainly
                        be true if we begin offset production.  Suggestions from readers are welcome.
                        With this issue, you will receive an index to volume I, which Mr. Ruthven
                        Todd has kindly prepared.  Volume II, in response to requests from readers, is
                        being paginated continuously rather than by separate numbers.  For the informa-
                        tion of those who want to keep their BNL’s in binders, we have found the kind
                        called “Accogrip” useful.
                        The BLAKE NEWSLETTER is edited by Morton D. Paley, Department of English,

                        if the money order is open and uncrossed.

The response to our dunning notice has been gratifying, indicating that our readers understand the need for their support.

For volume II, we have received some support from the University of California, providing editorial assistance; and the English Department office staff has taken over the task of production. Our existence for the present academic year is therefore assured, but after the University grant expires in June we will probably have to find some other source of aid. This will almost certainly be true if we begin offset production. Suggestions from readers are welcome.
