Catalogue Note

"I write for myself and Marwood who has been to see me.  He feels that he can be of no use to you since he sees a work of fiction in a quite different perspective."  As the correspondence progresses, it would seem Conrad falls in line with Marwood's thoughts, remarking: "With all my sympathy for your work I must say that on reflection the conviction grows on me that we look at the subject matter of imaginative writing from different rooms as it were and through different windows." Grant Watson was a writer and biologist, who published over 40 books in his lifetime. Arthur Marwood was a mutual friend of Conrad's and Ford Maddox Hueffer, and was a backer of Hueffer's English Review.
