Catalogue Note

Conrad begins by noting that Thomas is, "familiar with Conrad's scraps of paper I don't even pretend to apologise for this one." He goes on to thank Thomas for an inscribed book he had sent (possibly The Icknield Way), explaining: "I didn't acknowledge it at once because I wanted to get a quiet evening for reading it first; and I've been really and truly interested by the whole." Thomas probably met Conrad in 1910 at one of Thomas's and Garnett's Mont Blanc Tuesday lunchtime gatherings.  Thomas and Conrad were neighbors in Kent and became good friends.
