Scope and Content

Letter from Alfred Gissing to Winifred Isaac. He writes: Yes, Dr. Young spent a day or two in this valley, & we had some interesting talks. I am always glad to meet him & to hear about his literary researches. I feel that his standard is high, & that his work is careful & sincere. The volume of Bertz-Gissing letters will be a good one. I feel that none of the published letters give an entirely true impression of my father, but that those written by Bertz will do.

Arthur Gissing refers to The Letters of George Gissing to Eduard Bertz, 1887-1903, edited by Arthur Young (New Brunswick, New Jersey: Rutgers University Press, 1961).

Dated at Hôtel des Marécottes, Les Marécottes (Valais), Switzerland.
