Summary
Joseph Conrad was a British novelist, essayist, short-story writer, playwright, and translator. Elbridge L. Adams (1866-1934), an American lawyer and publisher, was a friend of Conrad and one of his early biographers. The collection comprises Joseph Conrad's typescript letter signed to Elbridge L. Adams, 1923 January 22 (with concluding paragraph, postscript, and corrections written in ink, 2 pages), and a fragment of Elbridge L. Adams's typescript draft of his magazine article "Joseph Conrad - The Man" (pages 1-10 only, each page glued to a sheet of paper). The draft contains Conrad's revisions and marginal comments in pencil. The letter, written at Oswalds to "My dear Adams," discusses his appreciation of the article, the reasoning behind his suggested alterations, his work and health, and other matters. The article was published in The Outlook, April 18, 1923, 708-712; the fragment covers approximately the first half, with Conrad's revisions incorporated into the text.
