LAWRENCE, D.H. Autograph letter signed to publisher B.W. Huebsch . Mexico City: 21 April 1923. 1 page autograph letter signed "D.H. Lawrence" to "Dear Huebsch", 11 x 8 1/2 inches (28 x 21.5 cm), with original mailing envelope. Usual folds, small marginal indentation and rust stain from old paperclip. A scathing letter from Lawrence severing ties with his early American publisher B.W. Huebsch. In this terse letter Lawrence acuses Huebsch of calling him a liar through his friend Robert Mountsier, and returns $200 collected by Huebsch, writing it would have been kinder still if you had earned for me enough royalties not to leave me absolutely poor, for several years. Huebsch published new works by Lawrence until about 1920, when Lawrence began publishing in New York with Thomas Setzer. Adding insult, and threatening injury, Lawrence ends the letter quite aggresively: ... I shall be glad to have nothing more to do with you. But don't forget, in your turn, that I have a tongue in my head, and teeth too, that I can use upon occasion. C The Creekmore and Adele Fath Charitable Foundation Collection
