For most of the letter Ford responds to queries from Hinton regarding the publication of several of his books. Towards the end Ford writes: "... I think 'The Good Soldier' is my best book technically unless you read the Tietjens books [the 'Parade's End' tetralogy] as one novel in which case the whole design appears. But I think the Tietjens books will probably 'date' a good deal whereas the other may–and need–not." Published in 'Letters', ed. R. M. Ludwig, pp. 203-04, but omitting a six-line paragraph. (BA).
