The Case of the Cottingley Fairies

July 14 letter from Conan Doyle On July 14th, Conan Doyle sent this letter to Mr. Wright, obviously following up on Mr. Wright's response.

(Written on stationery headed, "Windlesham, Crowborough, Sussex. Telegrams: Crowborough. Nat. Tel. No 77.")

Dear Mr. Wright

Yes, I will do perfectly well when Mr. Gardner goes north. I am deeply interested because I happened to be writing an article on the subject. I only hope that in the meanwhile Miss Elsie will have a try for another one. That would indeed silence the doubters.

Yours sincerely

Arthur Conan Doyle

August 3 follow-up.
