Letter to Albert Kinross about Mr. Nicholson

From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia

This letter was written by Arthur Conan Doyle between 1923 and 1930, from 15 Buckingham Palace Mansions, S.W.1 (London), to Albert Kinross, a British journalist, magazine editor and writer.


Dear Kinross

I am sending a copy of the book to the Author's Club library. Please have a look at the passage — it is about Chap. III I think, and tell me frankly if you think that there is anything offensive. If it had been said of me it would have amused me.

I wrote however to this lady's friend Mr. Nicholson (I think that's the man) and to Hamlin Garland saying I was sorry if I had unwittingly offended anyone.

Of course I could not dream of giving the name of my quite innocent informant.

Yours sincerely
A. Conan Doyle
