From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia


This letter was dictated (but signed) by Arthur Conan Doyle on 14 april 1917 from Windlesham to Richard Guy Ash, a dentist from Crowborough.


April 14th 1917

Dear Mr Ash

I am convinced that if your case is brought clearly to the notice of the tribunal they will realise that it is a proper one for exemption. A large camps, numerous schools and a considerable population are entirely dependent upon your services.

Yours sincerely

Arthur Conan Doyle.
