Letter to Frederic Whyte (19 april 1919)

From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia


This letter was written by Arthur Conan Doyle on 19 april [1919] to Frederic Whyte (1867-1941).


My dear Whyte,

It was a kindly thought. Many thanks.

No, this is my swansong — a dying duck's quack in history.

The rest of my life will be spent in endeavouring to show the human race how blind & deaf they have been in not understanding the great new spiritual forces which have come in so strange a fashion into the world.

Yours sincerely
A Conan Doyle
