Gerard Hopkins, Esq.,

Warwick Square,


September 30th, 1949.


My dear Gerry,

I am so sorry. With your usual penetration you have put your finger on just exactly what did happen. What a bore for you.


The proper book, THE CAPTAIN’S DEATH BED, will come in due course.


Yours ever,





1. Norah Smallwood.
