Description

AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED. Lord Dunsany to Mrs. Robert Gordon McKay. December 21, 1938. Four sides on Dunsany Castle letterhead. Folded horizontally. Postmarked envelope included. Lord Dunsany is dictating the letter, convalescing from a fever "after a longish walk in some rather deep marshes." He thanks her for the invitation to visit her in Castle Rock, New York next time he gets to America. Regarding his writing he says: "How nice to hear that all my books come your way. I have been lazy of late and have been using the bogs and the hills and the woods that lie all round me as material for my stories, instead of inventing it all as I feel a writer should. But it certainly has had the effect of making them read me on this side of the Atlantic, which they used not to do very much." He responds to a newspaper "cutting" she sent him, writing "Yes, the ill-treatment of the Jews is a very bad business." The text is in his wife's hand with Lord Dunsany's distinctive quilled signature at the end.
