Typed letter signed: "J.L. Garvin" in black ink. 1 page, 7x9. 23rd April 1926, London, England. On his letterhead as Editor, to "My dear Mr. Dawson", Headington, Oxford, in full: "I am afraid we are simply crowded out. It is the height of the season and do what we will we cannot find room enough for the British books which attract attention. So I could not possibly publish a notice of Oncken for a number of weeks. If you could manage to get a review into 700 words, I might be able to get it in sometime in June. You know what the pressure is. I am very sensible indeed of the importance of the volumes, as privately I keep in close touch with German historical publishing. With thanks, Yours very truly". James Louis Garvin (1868-1947) became the editor of London's historic Sunday newspaper The Observer in 1908. In the early years Garvin transformed the newspaper into his political platform, gaining nationwide supporters as a Unionist. During World War I Garvin he used his friendly ties with Winston Churchill and First Sea Lord Admiral John Fisher to give his readers first access to War news. An editor, he also served as editor of Pall Mall Gazette (1912-1915). He was a columnist for the Sunday Express and the Daily Telegraph shortly before his death. Normal mailing folds. Slightly creased. Corners creased. Lightly toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
