Letters of Ford Madox [Hueffer, aftw.] Ford (1873-1939), English author, to the literary agent who handled his novels, James B. Pinker. Some of the letters are in Ford's handwriting, but many are written or typewritten by a secretary and signed by Ford. Most of the letters for 1901-1915 are undated. In the early part of the correspondence there are a few references to Conrad. In general the correspondence relates almost entirely to Ford's writings, their publication and sale, and his frequent requests for advances. There is very little regarding his personal life.
