= Sending his latest book, offering suggestions for accomodations to stay and telling about the libretto for an operetta he wrote. "(...) Two very good places to consider, if there is any choice in the matter, would be Rye or Canterbury. Rye, particularly, is a marvellous place with many elevations which create good creative atmosphere. (...)

It is called The Plague and the Moonflower and I am rather pleased with it. (...) I will be avoiding books for the time being and just working without any particular direction. I[t] gives me a better feeling and the state of publishing is appalling (...)."
