This letter was written by Arthur Conan Doyle on 10 december 1924 to Harry Price about refusing to write the introduction of Price's essay "Stella C. : An Account of Some Original Experiments in Psychical Research". The introduction will be finally written by J. Turner.


15, Buckingham Palace Mansions
10th December, 1924.

Dear Mr. Price,

I have written such a number of prefaces of psychic books in the last 3 or 4 years that it has become just a little absurd — as if my 'information' was needed — and I have had to cry off. I refused my friend Mrs. Stobart last week for the same reason. I am sure that you will understand.

Yours very sincerely,

Arthur Conan Doyle

Your 'Stella' work seems most valuable. I wish you had gone to Boston to sit with Mrs. Crandon. The Committee are hopelessly incompetent.
