Letter to Major Pond about a lecture tour in America (26 june 1894)

From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia

This letter was written by Arthur Conan Doyle on 26 june 1894 to Major Pond, his impresario for preparing the lecture tour in America.


June 26 /94

Dear Major Pond

My wife is in very weak health and I can't leave her too long. You must look upon this as an experimental trip entirely. If it promises well we can try again.

For this time the lectures are quite a secondary thing with me. It is the country and the people that I wish to see. If I should seem to make any hit I had rather return another year. Don't fix anything after Dec 7th or so. I must be in Davos for Xmas.

Let me have my fixtures as soon as you can.

Yours very truly

A. Conan Doyle
