Autograph Letter Signed By J.M. Keynes To "The Man Who Understood Keynes Mind More Than Any of His Contemporaries": Stockbroker and Close Friend Oswald Toynbee Falk
St. Louis: St. Louis, 1917.
Autograph Letter Signed by J.M. Keynes To Oswald Toynbee Falk, a stockbroker and a close friend of Keynes. "[St Louis approaching New York] 11 Sept 1917. My dear Falk, I have had the enclosed letter from Herbert Samuel and have promised to do my best to secure such an article as he indicates. Will you try your hand? I should be very grateful if you would. I suspect that in your usual way you will disclaim the competence. But I would undertake to be the judge of that. In any case you might perhaps fortify yourself with collective wisdom by getting your dining party to discuss it first. I am not sure it wouldn’t prove a very instructive topic. If so, perhaps I might bring Mr. Samuel as a guest? I expect to be back in England by the end of the first week of October. Sincerely yours J.M. Keynes." Written on printed letterhead of the Royal Economic Society, Kings College, Cambridge (From Mr. J. M. Keynes, Editor of the Economic Journal). Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box.
