Publication details: 
Both on his North Stoke, Oxford, letterhead. 11 and 13 September 1932.
SKU: 14878

Both 1p., 4to, and both in good condition, on lightly-aged paper. ONE (11 September): He is writing regarding Wilson's 'kind suggestion that I should call in and see you one day shortly before the publication of my THACKERAY book'. Having been told by 'Mr. Hartley' that Bumpus is on holiday, he will call on 14 September. TWO (13 September 1932): Presumably with his tongue in his cheek, he writes: 'Dear Sirs, | Thank you for your letter of yesterday, reference II,456JGW, and for saving me the risk of a fruitless visit. I will call to see Mr. Wilson on Thursday the 15th, instead of to-morrow.' Elwin's 'Thackeray: A Personality' was published by Jonathan Cape in 1932.
