    More Information:

    H. G. Wells lived at Easton Glebe at Dunmow, Essex, United Kingdom, between 1910 and 1928. In the letter, Wells explains that his current projects, "answering letters about the special work for the Ministry of Munitions, the Civil Air Transport Command, a preface for a man's book, a committee to publish certain [?] matters about venereal disease, the author's war seal board, administrative work for the Author's Society, etc. etc..", preclude him from working on behalf of the unnamed recipient's attempts to publish a manuscript.
