Description: AN INTERESTING SIGNED LETTER PROVIDING INSIGHT INTO WODEHOUSE'S WRITING METHODS FOR ONE OF HIS MOST POPULAR WORKS. The letter, on Wodehouse?s Remsenburg New York stationery and dated Jan 14, 1962, reads in full: Dear Mr. Chapple. Thank you so much for your letter. I?m so glad you have enjoyed my books. I have just finished a short version of a new Jeeves novel -- short because the magazines over here won?t use long serials any more -- and I am now faced with the task of expanding it to book publication length. I think I shall manage it all right, as I condensed the short version very much, and there is a lot of Bertie-Jeeves chit chat I want to put in. Yours sincerely [signed] P.G. Wodehouse Wodehouse in this letter is almost certainly referring to his classic, Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves, which first appeared in serial form in Playboy before being published in book form in the U.S. on March 22, 1963 and in the U.K. on August 16, 1963. Remsenburg, NY: January 14, 1962. One page (6x7 inches). Horizontal fold, otherwise fine. With original envelope to the recipient.
Artist or Maker: WODEHOUSE, P.G
