Wodehouse and Thomson

"What a wonderful jacket they have given you. Not to compare with the contents, though.By the way, would Pelham Books like to use that as a comment? If so, tell them to go ahead."

A letter from a famous writer to a well-known cricket writer.
The cricket writer was equally proud of two things. One was the MBE he received and the other was this letter.

The topic of the book was an often used one.
Neville Cardus too wrote a book on this very topic.
