Catalogue Note

"I hope that in your article you will notice the little work called The Peace of the World. I attached great importance to it at the present time."

This letter was probably written around 1915, when "The Peace of the World"—an essay—was published in the U.S. and Britain as a pamphlet.  It was evident by Christmas of 1914 that the First World War would not be over soon, and this reality compelled Wells to plan for a world after the War—a plan that was dependent on ending the international conflict in what he perceived as the correct way.
