Feb. 8, 1945
Macmillans have just sent me a clipping from the Spectator with the familiar E.J.R. at the end. You have always been a dear friend to me for many years and this last review was most refreshing & heartening. The Collected Edition is going extremely well and there are good prospects of a market in the USA when Alfred A. Knopf brings out the American issue in the spring.
I haven't hear from you for a long time. How are you anyway? Still at the same journalistic job. I am doing about the same chores as you may see by the heading of this letter. Up to my neck in lecturing and not much time for writing.
God bless you,
