Letter by CJD to R.H. Croll 1917.11.12
The desk duly arrived on Saturday in good order, and I'm pleased to say that, without any guff, the wife was delighted. As near as possible you hit upon just the thing she wanted, so you will be pleased as well as I. Thanks for the trouble you took.
I am returning books by this mail - signed.
Pepys, you will be glad to hear has started his diary, much to the wife's annoyance. He scatters his little notes all over the floor & furniture. He is indeed a voluminous writer.
