67 Selborne Road, Southgate, N.
Dec. 1.

Dear Dr. McKerrow

Your letters (which I return) give very good news. The necessity for an ‘English Studies’ periodical is obvious; but I felt, as you know, a little uneasy with regard to those who have been keeping the flag flying with difficulties for so long a time. It is great to feel that there is no difficulty in the way.

3 p.m. on Friday {1} would suit me excellently, & I shall be very glad to form one of the conspirators

Yours sincerely
R W Chambers.


{1} 7th.
