Letters of C. J. Campbell (fl. 1925), Novelist

Scope and Content

The collection is composed of letters to Mr. M. Starr from Campbell, at Upper Montagu Street, London W.1. One is headed Thursday and tells of him wanting to come to Combe Martin and that he is 'working at a great rate just now' as he has to deliver a new book to his publisher. Another is headed Sunday and tells how 'work has consumed' all his time. It also refers to Milo sailing to America and that if Milo wants to use the flat he must say in advance so that the cook can expect him. The letter also refers to days spent at East Challacombe. A third letter is headed July 16 and tells of a new book not yet finished but that the 'publishers are being more than charming about it'.
