HOUSMAN, Alfred Edward (1859-1936). Poet and classical scholar.
Autograph Letter Signed ('A.E. Housman') to an unnamed correspondent, 1 page 8vo with integral blank leaf, Trinity College, Cambridge, 26 October 1922. Thanking him for a letter ('letters are often more interesting and valuable than reviews').

Housman spent all the latter part of his life at Cambridge where he was a fellow of Trinity College and professor of Latin, a chair which he had previously held at University College, London. The present letter may be in answer to a comment, presumably favourable, on his last volume of poetry Last Poems which was published in 1922.
