BARRIE, Sir James Matthew (1860-1937). Playwright and novelist.
Autograph Letter Signed (written with the left and signed with the right?) to A J Pearse, ½-page 8vo with envelope, Stanway, Cheltenham, 1 January 1932. A brief letter of thanks.
Barrie was a regular visitor to Stanway House in the Cotswolds, the home of Lord Wemyss. He wrote and produced several plays there for the benefit of his hosts and fellow guests, and there is an extraordinary 'home movie' of him punting on the lake in the company of a small boy, available on the Internet (you may use this link).
