This letter was written by Arthur Conan Doyle circa april 1930 to Mr. Carl A. Carleson, President of the Stockholms Spiritualistiska Förening (Stockholm Spiritualist Association). Conan Doyle gives news about his poor health state (a few months before his death).


Dear Carleson

I am still very ill. I have not walked 150 yards at one time since Nov 10th.

I have written to the printers about those plates. If they have not the blocks I can do nothing. I really am not fit to look after details.

I send a line about Swaffer. I really forget about the book.

Thanks for Johanson warning.
