BASIL KING
Handwritten note on a picture postcard, writing that the recipient would surely enjoy the islands in San Francisco. Postmarked 1921, extremely rare!
Autograph note on picture postcard signed: "Basil King", in black ink, 5½x3½. September 27, 1921. San Francisco. In full: "Wishing that you will like the news of this island in San Francisco Bay. Believe me, yours sincerely". Canadian born Basil King (1859-1928) was a clergyman and author, first writing after being forced to retire from the clergy due to thyroid disease and loss of eyesight. He published a larger amount of works in his career, first finding success with his anonymously published The Inner Shrine in 1909. Other works include The Way Home (1913), The High Heart (1917), and The Dust Flower (1922). Many of his later works had spiritual influences due to his ill-health and struggle with death. King did eventually die, though perhaps not from ill-health - it is often theorized that King had instead been poisoned by an unknown source. Corners lightly worn and creased. Ink stamps. Lightly soiled and toned, esp. on outer margins. Otherwise, fine condition.
