42 Roland Gardens, South Kensington, S.W.
21. xii. 24

Dear Dr McKerrow.

Many thanks for the first number of The Review of English Studies, upon which I offer you my congratulations, if, being one of the contributors, I may properly do so. I will send you before the middle of January some more notes on Dryden, which will probably exceed in bulk those which are in the first number, and also one or two detached ‘notes’, if you care for them. I would certainly prefer to have the Dryden notes together later. I venture to trouble you with my subscription form and 8/ remittance, thinking you will receive this at the Publishers’ Office.

The only man I can at the moment think of as one I should like to enlist for R.E.S is J. Paul de Castro. 1 Essex Court, Temple. he† is the authority on Fielding, and though 1600–1700 naturally interests me more than the period since, I recognise that it would be a great mistake to limit the scope of the Review.

Yours sincerely
G. Thorn-Drury

[Direction on envelope:] R. B. McKerrow Esqre Litt.D. | Care of Sidgwick & Jackson, Ltd | 3 Adam St. | W.C.2.


The envelope was postmarked at South Kensington at 11.15 p.m. on 21 December 1924.
