Letter to Richard Guy Ash about his wife's maid

From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia

This undated [1] letter was written by Arthur Conan Doyle from the Burlington Hotel, Eastbourne (UK), to Richard Guy Ash, a dentist from Crowborough.

The maid mentioned by Conan Doyle is probably Mary Jakeman.


Dear Mr Ash

My plate fits well now.

Would you examine my wife's maid (the bearer of this) and give her an estimate of what it will cost to set her right. She is not rich.

Yours sincerely

A Conan Doyle.
