Manuscript dedication to the artist Sir Gerald Kelly (1797-1972): 'Some of these stories are failures completely. One or two are not bad but I like space and room, and the 'conte' [continent] always seems to me to have been done so well by French and Russians that we can only imitate them. | To Gerald | from Hugh Walpole | July 1, 1922'.

Kelly painted Walpole between 1924 and 1925, and the British Library holds a first edition of Walpole's The Dark Forest, also with a lengthy manuscript dedication to the artist on the fly-leaf (https://blogs.bl.uk/european/2018/03/konstantin-somov-and-hugh-walpole-in-russia.html?msclkid=bb662a96c31811eca40f0a5ff9a3297c).
