1p, 12mo. In good condition, on lightly aged paper. Folded twice, resulting in offset ink smudging. Reads: 'Dear Rylands, | I am writing to you in case Noel is away. I have asked Mr Greene to show you my letter to Noel, if this is should [sic] be so. Anything you could do to help, would be kind and good, I think. | Yrs sincerely | Angus Wilson.' It would be tempting to assume that 'Mr Greene' is the novelist (although it might just as well be his brother), and that 'Noel' is Noel Coward, but the idea of any connection between Wilson and the two men is not supported by Conradi's biography, which contains no reference to a 'Rylands'.
