Please note: Peter Morton, a Grant Allen
scholar and English Professor at Flinders University in Australia, tells us that
while the letter below is in Allen's hand, the manuscript is not. We suspect the
author of the manuscript may be an unpublished writer named Grant Allan (with
an a). We do not know what the initials at the end of the manuscript (C.A.E.D.B.)
