Letter to David Thomson (4 january 1893)
This letter was written by Arthur Conan Doyle on 4 january 1893 from The Reform Club to David Thomson, an old Edinburgh friend which was Medical Superintendent of the Norfolk County Asylum at Thorpe hospital in Norwich.
My dear David,
Your letter gave us a hearty laugh as your letters usually do. The man who comes to write your life and letters should make a great humourous book. I wish I could come, but I am doing this coming opera at the Savoy, and what with the Composer, and what with D'Oyly Carte I can't even get half an hour on the ice. None the less many thanks for thinking of me! Kindest remembrances to Mrs. Thomson and every good wish for a good '93.
A Conan Doyle.
