I also wish to thank the Joseph Conrad Estate (through the agency of Cambridge University Press and Professor Laurence Davies) and the Trustees of the Pierpont Morgan Library, New York, for their respective permission to quote from the eight letters from Joseph Conrad to Edmund Candler, the originals of which are held by the Pierpont Morgan Library, New York (Accession No.
