Letter about Micah Clarke (6 august 1894)
From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia
This letter was written by Arthur Conan Doyle on 6 august 1894 from his house at 12 Tennison Road, South Norwood.
The recipient may have been Samuel Harden Church (1858-1943) whose work "Oliver Cromwell: A History" was published in 1894, the same year as the present letter.
My dear Sir
Very many thanks for the charming book which you have sent me. I shall value it very highly. I have always been intensely interested in the fighting Puritan and have endeavoured to draw several types of him in "Micah Clarke." Oliver  was the greatest king we ever had in England and it will be a joy to me to read his career again in your pages.
Yours very truly
A Conan Doyle.
- Oliver Cromwell (1599-1658).
