    More Information:

    Maugham dedicated Blessed Virgin to Violet Hunt, with whom he had a brief affair and with whom he remained friends. In a letter to a friend, he notes that Violet was put out by this, "chiefly, I think, because it is called The Land of the Blessed Virgin and she could not imagine what the hell would be her business in such a country."

     

    Stott A8. Morgan, p. 95.

    From the Collection of Norman F. Moore.
