Original Autograph Letter, Signed, to L. P. Jacks].
Mount Royal, Marble Arch, London. 14 October 1936. - Two pages, ca. 175 words, in ink, on recto and verso of quarto sheet of letterhead. Horizontal fold for mailing, otherwise about fine. Folding cloth slipcase. A fine letter from Huxley to Lawrence Pearsall Jacks (1860 - 1955), British Unitarian Minister, professor of Philosophy and Theology at Manchester College, and progressive advocate of social justice and revision of military policy. Huxley apologizes for a possible oversight in their correspondence, attempts to arrange a meeting (in part to introduce him to Gerald Heard "who, as you doubtless know, is an indefatigable worker in the cause of peace and would very much like to have the opportunity of talking with you ."), and continues: "I read the Alexander Hamilton article with very great interest. What an instructive parallel it is! And how did Wilson manage to miss the significance of it? Have you yet read Russell's new book, 'Which Way to Peace'? It is a most admirably lucid argument leading by remorseless logic to the complete pacifist position." Signed "Yours sincerely Aldous Huxley."
