Greenwich, CT: 1944.
1 page, 8 x 5 inches, Greenwich, Connecticut, December 12, no year but accompanied by the original postmarked envelope from 1944. This letter was written to an American serviceman and fan of his writing, in part: "...I am sorry I do not have a First Edition of The Golden Years, I fear the original volumes are completely sold out. You might have better luck in a small store somewhere - if there is less demand there is always the chance that a copy might be left over. I am glad my writings have helped to relieve the monotony of Army life...and I wish you a speedy return to the ways of peace when final victory is won..." One horizontal fold; near fine condition.
Scottish physician and novelist. His best known works include "The Citadel," "Keys of the Kingdom" and "The Green Years," all of which were adapted to film.
