Abstract:

In a letter, 1928 Nov 6., to [Robert] Bridges he writes that he is writing a history of the Dime novel to be published by Little Brown & Co. and inquires about his knowledge of Dime novels.

A carbon copy reply is attached responding to Pearson's letter, recalling his boyhood memories of reading, particularly his hero Jack Harkaway by Bracebridge Hemyng as well as novels by Mayne Reid and adding an anecdote about Theodore Roosevelt.

An undated letter thanks Bridges for his letter and notes that Jack Harkaway was a Dime novelist and adds, "You were being cultured without knowing it."

A 1928 Dec 5 letter thanks Bridges for his second letter, noting that it will be useful to him, adding that he read mayne Reid and

An undated letter thanks Bridges for his letter and notes that Mayne Reid was a Dime novelist and adds, "You were being cultured without knowing it."

In a letter, n.y. Sep 8., to [Alfred?] Dashiell, Pearson writes that last winter he started to write a detective novel, but has not made much progress. He has to keep at his regular work of non-fiction to pay his living expenses and doesn't seem to find the "leisure and breathing space to start a new and doubtfully rewarded kind of writing." He adds, "Doubtfully, I mean, for me."
