Letter to Private Martin Hanlon

From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia

This letter was written by Arthur Conan Doyle from Undershaw, Hindhead, Haslemere, to Private Martin Hanlon of the City of London Volunteers. Undated.



My dear Hanlon

Your letter was a real pleasure for I have often longed to know how you got through your terrible illness. There was never a man so near death. Is it true that you are recommended for the V.C.? [1] Splendid! With all good wishes.

Yours very truly
A Conan Doyle.
