Letter from Lorne Pierce to E.J. Pratt, 12 January 1932




Dr. E.J. Pratt,
21 Cortleighly Blvd.,
Dear Ned:
The stock department are loath to consign your PAULINE ESCHATOLOGY to the Eschatological incinerator without your written say so. Will you please be good enough to give me the written authority.
Sincerely yours,
Dear Lorne: You are most welcome to consign these Eschatological monstrosities to the everlasting flames where they should have gone in the first place. I burned some fifty of them several years ago and the house has remained hot ever since. I calculate that twenty tons of coal were saved thereby. This is your authorisation to give them a hasty and fiery despatch.
