Letter from Alfred Gissing to Winifred Isaac. He writes: I was so pleased to hear that you have a copy of 'Veranilda'. My feelings for that book are similar to yours. I am particularly fond of it, because it contains, I think, some of my father's best work & best style. After all, one must not forget that Rome & Greece were the lands which meant most to him - not London... Some time ago I was asked to say a word or two for the centenary broadcast on my father this coming autumn. I agreed to do this, but for the wireless only a colloquial trifles are demanded & one cannot say anything below the superficial. However, it is good to hear this commemoration, & know that my father's work is not forgotten.
Dated at Hôtel des Marécottes, Les Marécottes (Valais), Switzerland.
