Nov. 22 [1940].

Dearest Pelham:

I know you do not want to take a 'fee' for helping out Thursday evening but a tenner is available and you might as well have it, as no one but Little knows. You were simply superb and numbers of people have rung up and written and spoken directly about your rendition of that dialogue. No one could have done it like you.

Ned.

There's a bottle of L.C.B. Scotch for you next Thursday.
