This letter was written by Arthur Conan Doyle in may 1897 from hotel Claremont Grand Parade in Eastbourne, to Mr. Bryden.


Grand Parade

My dear Sir

I lost your address and sent a long letter to the Author's Club, but I daresay it hasn't reached you. Now I have found your address again. I am so sorry that I can't play on the 19th. By an extraordinary coincidence, it is the day when Barnes' literary team (which I usually captain) has its one annual match & I am under a permanent promise to play for them.

I wish you would come round to see us. Couldn't you come to a modest unceremonious no-dress dinner tomorrow (friday) evening. I don't know if there is a Mrs. Bryden. My wife is an invalid & cannot visit but we should be delighted to see Mrs. Bryden to dinner also if there is such a lady & if she will be unconventional.

Yours very truly

A Conan Doyle.
