This letter was written by Arthur Conan Doyle on 1 july 1910, from Windlesham, Crowborough, Sussex, to Charles Humble Dudley Ward (1879-1945) about his book "Jenny Peters".


July 1 /10

Dear Mr. Dudley Ward,

My brother-in-law, Stewart Leckie, lent me your book "Jenny Peters" and I have spent the day reading it. I thought it fine — very brave and lofty — well done in every way. I hear from Leckie that it is in trouble with the libraries — and I am not surprised — but anyone can see it is all done for a good purpose.

Excuse this line
Yours very truly
Arthur Conan Doyle
