escaping, bash

hugh@nomessin:~$ scp hugh@wacka.mjr.org:~/grant\ letter.doc ~/
hugh@mjr.org's password:
scp: /home/hugh/grant: No such file or directory
scp: letter.doc: No such file or directory

hugh@wacka:~$ du -h grant\ letter.doc
48k     grant letter.doc

so its obvious what went wrong -i only mean to request one file. 
How do specify the file correctly?

[for now i shall rename it then copy it but would be good to know for
future reference]
