Have you ever been in the distressing situation of having to refuse an invitation to a ball, simply because you lacked the ability to 'RSVP' to the Duchess of Windsor in the correct manner? Have you lost money because you were unable to send a good threatening letter to your tenant demanding payment of overdue rent? Are you curious as to the letter-writing skills of HIM Queen Victoria?
Well then, this 1912 edition of 'How To Write A Good Letter' is for you.
It was printed and published by Foyles, the famous London booksellers, and contains everything you need to know on the subject - especially if you use pen and ink. Originally costing sixpence, this fabulous prize could be yours to love and cherish, and - as the frontispiece tells us - "A good letter has laid the foundations of many a man's prosperity."
All you have to do is write me a good letter in the comments box below, and I will decide on the winner once the entries seem to have dried up. Special consideration will be given to love-letters (but only ones from the opposite sex, addressed to me). Male entrants will have to suffice with simple flattery, and any hint of homo-eroticism will ensure immediate disqualification.
Get writing, and it could be yours!
