Mr. Housman and the Censor is a letter co-written by Arthur Conan Doyle first published in The Pall Mall Gazette on 3 october 1910.


Mr. Housman and the Censor

Sir, — Without touching upon the question of the total abolition of the Censorship, about which some difference of opinion may exist, we would strongly urge that the rejection of Mr. Laurence Housman's play, without reason assigned, shows clearly the imperative advisability that the judgment of the Lord Chamber-lain, in his capacity as Censor of plays, should be made subject to appeal.

We are, Sir,

Yours faithfully,
