T.S. ELIOT OFFERS TO SIGN SOME OF HIS BOOKS

 IN TIME FOR THEM TO BE CHRISTMAS PRESENTS

ELIOT, T[HOMAS].S[TEARNS].  (1888-1965).  American-born writer and poet.  Typed Letter Signed, “T.S.E.”, on imprinted Faber and Faber Ltd. letterhead.  One full page, small quarto.  “24 Russell Square, London, W.C.1”, December 5, 1946.  Very fine condition.  To “J. de V. Aylward, Esq., 22 Victoria Road, West Kirby, Cheshire”.  Eliot writes:

“My dear Aylward, It is good to hear from you whatever the provocation behind your letter and I hasten to assure you that I shall be very happy to perform this slight service for your friend and his daughter.  As he has already got the books and as some of them may be out of stock here, it seems best that he should send them on to me at once and I will sign them immediately so that the gift will be in good time for Christmas.  You say nothing about any likelihood of your visiting London but I hope that you will have reason to come before very long.  I shall be invisible during most of January as I am going to have a minor operation so I hope that your next visit will not be during that period.  With best wishes and looking forward to a future evening with you, Yours ever, T.S.E.”
