Enclosure – Time & Tide Review of Antigua, Penny, Puce November 14, 19361; RG's signed letter of response

It occurs to me to ask you what you have got.
I mean,[RG]: besides an admiration for the New Yorker2, broad-minded tolerance of Lesbians and the laughter of Little Audrey[RG], realism, and a bold revival of the Victorian[RG] 'this is a work of art.'
Obviously you have something that you think a lot of[RG] greatly prize[RG], or you wouldn't write[RG] review[RG] so recklessly always.
Is it something you have[RG] written or are writing[RG], or merely something physical – a musk-gland or whatnot? If the former, I should like to see it.
Sincerely yours,
