To Mr. Schneider, In full: "Thank you for your charming letter and good wishes on my ninety-first birthday. It was extremely kind of you to think of me; I was touched and much pleased. Yours sincerely," British author WILLIAM SOMERSET MAUGHAM (1874-1965) wrote eight novels before publishing the partly autobiographical Of Human Bondage (1915). His works also include The Moon and Sixpence (1919), based on the life of artist Paul Gauguin, and The Razor's Edge (1944), the story of a young man's search for spiritual meaning. Maugham was also a successful writer of plays, short stories and travelogues. He worked secretly for several years, beginning in World War I, for the British intelligence service MI-6, the inspiration for his story collection Ashenden (1928). After 1927, Maugham lived most of his life in Cap Ferrat, on the French Riviera. Vertical and horizontal folds affecting "W S"of signature.
