My dear Derek,

Had to go into town today, so I thought I'd pop into the B.M.

Results: "Etcetera" not listed in the catalogue.

Got out "Buried Caesars" (Chicago:Covici-McGee,1923)
but found the only relevant essay is the one of which you have a
photocopy - i.e. "Two Suicides:Hubert Crackanthorpe and Richard
Middleton". The other essays deal with Machen,Crane,J.3.Cabell

Incidentally, xxxxxx WHO'S WHD.(b. Toronto,1886 - long list of books and mags for which
he has written. His last book,"Born in a Bookshop",appeared in
1965.) Would you consider writing to the old boy ? If so,here's
the address:

3749 N. Fremont St.,

I did a little job for myself, xxxx i.e. looking up my own
surname in the A. Who's Who,as I knew that 2 members of the family
had been in it. This time only one - presumably the older member is
now dead. Anyway,Nan Greacen,a painter about 65 years old,gets
quite an amount of space - lives in New York.

Love to you both -

Have been corresponding with John Stewart Collis.
Do you know his work? Perhaps "FOLLOWING THE PLOUGH"?
