Text in full: "I am just our of bed after a fit of gout - nothing new for me. I regret it delayed me in thanking you for the magnificent Max album. / W. Rothenstein was here a few days before xmas and was talking to me of the book with great enthusiasm. I told him I would certainly get it as I too am a great admirer of M. Beerbohm's talent. To receive it from you has been the most pleasant of surprises. / The envelope is worthy of the contents. The sheer sumptuosity of the red covers is highly effective. / Pray accept my best wishes for the coming year and believe me always Very faithfully yours, / J. Conrad".
