T.L.S. 8vo. 1 page, on personal stationary, Guildford, Surry, July 16th 1936. Written to fellow mystery writer Dennis Wheatley, thanking him for his gift of a copy of "Murder Off Miami". In part: "...The splendor of your idea for the book overwhelms me. It really is a quite thrilling scheme and I am sure will meet with enormous success. The execution also seems to me entirely worthy of the idea. The reproductions are extraordinarily good. Please accept my hearty congratulations..." Fine conciliation.
Anglo-Irish mystery author during the golden age of detective fiction.
