SEAMAN, Sir Owen (1861-1936). Editor of 'Punch'.
Series of 4 Autograph Letters Signed and 2 Typewritten Letters Signed ('Owen Seaman' or 'O.S.'), to Hugh Chesterman, 6 pages 4to on Punch writing paper, 10 January 1928 to 14 April 1930. Concerned with work that Chesterman had sent to Punch for publication, variously suggesting alterations and accepting or rejecting submissions.

'I have a series running regularly on the subject of London's Royal Statues' and another desultory one on London Gates, and is enough, for the time being, about London features.'
 '... I think you had better get your present-day facts right. The French unsuitable world may appear on Continental Trains & it is doubtful if James Minor would go to school by one of these.'
 'I like "Taillefer" very much, but I am afraid it is too purely serious a treatment of an episode that is rather well known.'
