Letter about Judge Chitty (23 march)

From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia


This letter was written by Arthur Conan Doyle on 23 march [year not mentioned] from Windlesham, Crowborough, Sussex.


Dear Sir

Do not disclose Judge Chitty's name. I have now his leave to reproduce this wonderful picture in my next article.

Yours truly

A Conan Doyle

NB : In alluding to Chitty in this present week you can say "Son of a Judge" but not that he is himself a distinguished lawyer, as that might be too near.

March 23.
