To a Mr. Bain, apparently a bookseller: "I am unfortunate: I need one of my own rotten books - a Revolt in the Desert, any late edition. Can you find one cheap? Send me those Irish Memories, too, about which you sent me a chit ... and are there any of S. Sassoon's skits on Wolfe (Pinchbeck Lyre's) to be got? Any edition. I wanted two. There is also a book called 'Juan in America' which I must read. Nothing else, I hope [...]".
