Letter by CJD to J.G. Roberts 1916.02.14
I know you will be as delighted as I am to know that Geo. Robertson of A. & R. has received from H.G. Wells a fine letter praising the "Sentimental Bloke". Also, they have received a most enthusiastic letter from W.J. Locke, the author, in which he calls the "Bloke" "a new and ever to be re-tasted joy".
Wells says that when Australia is done with me they could do with me over there. But I shall show you copies of both letters when I come to town.
I am getting along rather slowly with Mick but hope to do better during the week. I have hardly got into my stride yet.
Kind regards to mother and the family. I hope all are well.
