All three items in good condition, on lightly-aged paper. Letter One: 1p., 4to. Having been told by 'General Evans' that Brett-James has 'kindly agreed to criticise the manuscript of a book I have just completed' he is enclosing it (the manuscript is not present). 'If you could possibly let me have it back by next Saturday, 14th, I should appreciate it, as on 15th. I am going to Mexico, & the mails with that country are not very good.' He is also enclosing a cheque for three guineas, 'which, I believe, is what you said'. Letter Two: 1p., landscape 12mo. He thanks him for his letter, '& for agreeing to criticise my manuscript. I'll send it along as soon as I get it from Miss Bonnaire.' He finds the fee of five guineas 'quite acceptable'. 'You seem to have been, & to be, having a very busy time, but it all sounds most interesting. Your mention of the Waterloo battlefield reminds me how much I used to enjoy the lectures of Rose [the historian John Holland Rose (1855-1942)] on the Napoleonic era. Other outstanding lecturers were Maynard Keynes on the economic consequences of the Versailles peace treaty of 1918/19, Clapham & Tout'. Note: 'Dear Brett-James, | Just to let you know that I am moving to above on Sunday. | Yours sincerely, | A Grantham.' Grantham does not appear to have published any works of military history.
