Catalogue Note

Conrad details a bout of ill health, aplogizing to Hope that he "should have troubled to write. I feel very remorseful towards your dear wife and you, for indeed I would have written when sending the book.  But I was not very well and not quite fit to use the pen just then, and I wanted you to have your copy on the day of publication." Conrad is likely referring to The Rover, his last complete novel, written between 1921 and 1922, and published in 1923.
