This popular British writer, poet, historian, novelist and man of letters penned a staggering number of books in a wide variety of genres; he also found time to serve as director of publisher Methuen Ltd. from 1938 to 1958. TLS, 1p, 4½" X 7", Surray, England, 24 April 1941. Addressed to Arnold F. Gates (1914-93, noted Lincoln and Civil War scholar). Fine. Thanks this admirer for birthday wishes, adding: "I'm so glad you like COMMON SENSE ABOUT DRAMA. The critics on your side of the water didn't take too kindly to it, so a word of praise is doubly welcome. I've just finished a new novel -- THE BAY -- which I hope will be out in the fall." A nice example. Bookseller Inventory # 40731
