Typed Letter Signed 'Daphne du Maurier' to 'Dear Mr Huggett' thanking him for his letter and apologising if he didn't get a reply from her a couple of years earlier but "it could have been that I was away from home ... having no secretary letters do get overlooked at these times, and I fear this is what must have happened then. To make amends I answer this at once! I am so glad you enjoy reading my books, but I am afraid I have nothing in manuscript that I could send you. I hold all manuscripts in trust either for my family, when I am dead, or for a museum, such as the Royal Institute of Cornwall, where students, if they so desired, could study m.s.s. in their original form. I am so sorry to disappoint you, Meanwhile, please go on collecting the books! ...", 1 side 8vo., with original typed envelope, Kilmarth, Par, Cornwall headed paper, 13th November
