Letter to Mr Gillette (25 october 1929)

From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia

This letter was written by Arthur Conan Doyle on 25 october 1929 from The Hotel d'Angleterre, Copenhagen, Denmark.


My dear Gillette

May I add my word to those which are addressed to you upon the occasion of your return to the stage. That this return should be in "Sherlock Holmes" is of course a source of personal gratification, my only complaint being that you make the poor hero of the anaemic printed page a very limp object as compared with the glamour of you own personality which you infuse into his stage presentment. But in any case you are bringing back to the world something very precious in your own great powers, and I rejoice to know it.

Yours always

Arthur Conan Doyle
