Dear Esq. George Alan Melly, The last Mick-straw has broken my feeble but patient back. I have endured your drunken and dissolute ways, your wanton waste of light, gas fire, hot bath water, horse radish, beans, lavatory water, your assumption that my library was yours, and that you had a right to read the New Statesman and the Obituaries in the World's Fair before me.

My simple nature has assumed that it is proper for you to associate with such loose women as the
