J M Barrie to Mrs Arthur Quiller-Couch - 1892


Letter from J M Barrie to Mrs Arthur Quiller-Couch, 3 April 1892.


Dear Mrs Couch

I have sent you a copy of my book because your big studio is a room I often think of with pleasure up here. Please take it. I don’t know if you know how much I enjoyed myself at that corner fireplace. I am hoping Mr Couch is better: I saw a portrait of him smoking a cigar in the Daily Graphic which struck me as an uppish thing to do unless the intention was to make publishers think that literary hands (now the Copyright Bill is passed) do this regularly. And I have myself framed him from the Bookman all complete with a ring to hang him up by.

Lastly it will be a real gratification to him (and you) to know that his mysterious ailment has suggested a comedy or a novel to me. Seriously I want to hear whether he is better and I hope one of you will let me know.

Yours very sincerely,

J. M. Barrie
