    But Swanson says 'sent by us with difficulty' so the sending would have had to be indirect.

      Yes....? I think that's what I'm saying.

        From Hell:

        ' EDWIN HELL . I am a policeman. I received the prisoner in charge, and took him to the station-house—the prisoner said in the shop, "I know nothing about the jacket, only a man outside sent me to pawn it"—I know nothing of him, he is a stranger to me.'

          Well then Scott, what about Smith? Did he know?

            If you believe the Introduction to H.L. Adam's, The Trial of George Chapman, yes Smith did know.

              Letter

              I thought that readers might like to see the attached letter written by Anderson to Swanson - look at the date.

                  Stewart, it's difficult to make out. Is the second paragraph "I want at the same time to ask you questions of the accompanying book" or something like that?

                    "I want at the same time to ask your acceptance of the accompanying book. I hope you are well.", maybe?

                      Yes, that's probably it, Gareth. Which book was this, then?

                        If it was one of Anderson's, it may have been "Redemption Truths (For Us Men)", which was published in 1905.

                        A web-page version of that book (and many others) may be found at the following site:

                          Swanson must have been thrilled to get that one! Better than "Howard Brown : Collected Captions" though. Marginally better, anyway.

                            ... on the back fly-leaf: "Judas was the suspect"

                            Apologies for levity. Back to an interesting thread!

                              Undated

                              In the Anderson archive that I bought a few years back was this undated Swanson letter with New Year good wishes. I wonder if it was in response to the letter above?

                                Quite possibly Stewart. But did Anderson send Swanson a Christmas present every year?
