One page, 6 x 8 3/4, TLS, from the Bachelors’ Club, Hamilton Place, August 31, 1905, discounting psychic influences in his life, to an unnamed recipient, a topic of great interest at the time.
“In answer to your letter of the 26th, I beg to say that I should have been pleased to have contributed any experiences of the kind you have in view, had any such experiences been mine. A certain number of odd coincidences, I suppose, occur in the lives of all of us; but nothing whatever has occurred to me personally which even suggested the operation of any abnormal agency. Your letter, addressed to me in Devonshire, has only just reached me, or I would have sent you a reply earlier.
Toning, fold, light stain. Very readable and a nice example of a letter from a notable author commenting on psychic phenomena.
