71/1403 Tomlinson, H.M. Lot of 3 AUTOGRAPH LETTERS SIGNED, 1 AUTOGRAPH ESSAY SIGNED and a TYPESCRIPT ESSAY WITH AUTOGRAPH CORRECTIONS, pen and ink (4x)/ typescript, dated between "4 Dec. 1928" [stamped filing date of receipt] and "18.11.41"

= Comprises the following: 1. Autograph letter signed to Mrss Constable & Co. covering the sending of Tomlinson's introduction to Pierre, or the Ambiguities ((1)leaf, recto only); 2. Typescript of the introduction to Pierre, or The Ambiguities for the edition publ. by Dutton, NY in 1929 ((8) leaves, recto only); 3. Autograph letter signed to C.A. Williamson, one leaf, recto only, w. printed letterhead "Rigewood, Croham Manor Road, South Croydon", w. orig. envelope, commenting i.a. "It looks to me as if it is not worth while to educate children whose parents frustrate your efforts"; 4. Autograph letter signed to "Major Dawson", dated "18.11.41", 1 leaf, recto and verso. Affectionate response to Dawson's apprection of a radio broadcast by Tomlinson on Joseph Conrad, expressing his gladness at finding that "not only sanity subsists, but understanding, & good will (...) in a world curiously alien" [the war years]; 5. Autograph essay signed, titled "Years o.t.[?] Modern", 19 leaves, pen and ink, recto only. Interesting essay on the merits of newspaper journalism and Tomlinson's experiences and disappointments as a beginning journalist on Fleet Street; he philosophizes about the threat of an (Orwellian) future dominated by the forceful enjoyment of a world in which beauty is not allowed to exist and which is governed by absolutist powers. "After that day, any man found with so much as a record of classical music, a forbidden book of verse, or a picture that is not a certified oleograph, some chance piece of subversive & inimicable stuff which has escaped the Day of Burning will himself be deemed to be an enemy of the State; and, at[sic] it would be dangerous to allow such a man to breed his kind, he will be handed over to officials whose duty it is to purge society of a possibility of infection." He concludes that Fleet Street journalism is "an invisible power, which broke men, though it could keep wheels brightly turning". Possibly an unpublished essay.
