4pp., 16mo. On bifolium. In fair condition, on lightly-aged and worn paper. He begins: 'No - I am not going to write the sequel to The City [his 1909 book 'The City of Beautiful Nonsense'] - but I am now hard at work on a book that is going to give me more pleasure to do than anything I have done yet. It is all laid in Ireland - which I have not written of for some years - & I believe will be as interesting to read as it is engrossing to me to write.' He asks him to 'go & see my play "Driven" when Johnson does it - some time this month in New York - & let me know - in

if you will - what sort of performance it was.' He complains that he has 'not yet received my cheque for the advance sales of The Achievement'. 'Things are none too easy with the writers just now as you can imagine & as I am drilling every day now for active service at home, you can imagine I have not a great deal of time for work.' In a postscript he sends his regards to 'Sears' (the letter is docketed in red pencil 'Mr Sears').
