Easton Glebe, Dunmow, Essex No Publisher. c.1910.
Easton Glebe, Dunmow, undated but probably written shortly after the publication of First & Last Things in 1908. 8vo. One page. To an unidentified recipient Wells expresses views on religious faith. "Dear Sir, I am obliged to you for a sight of your ingenious experiment in theology but if you had done me the honour to read my First & Last Things you would know that I find more difficulties than you seem to do in the definition of the individual. ......My conception of God ...... is the working of a common awareness of being in the human species and doesn't go a step beyond that. The idea of a mind and soul for the globe (which is made of nickel steel and rust ...) does not appeal to me. Very sincerely yours, H.G. Wells."It would be fascinating to know who the correspondent was. An important letter, in fine condition, folded for posting.
