In n word, it is doing tremendously well vastly better than I expected or precedent in newspaper consolida tions indicated as possible. CIRCULATION APPROXIMATELY 200,000. The net sale of THE SUN is now just about two hundred thousand copies a day. It may be a few thousand copies less and may be a few thousand copies more. We cannot know accurately until all unsold copies come in from newsdealers in the country. This great circulation is well in excess of the com bined circulations of both THE SUN and THE PRESS before the amalgamation on Monday, July 3. Moreover, THE SUN now has much the biggest circulation in its hiBtory bigger by fully sixty thousand than in its greatest days under Mr. Dana's control and guidance.
