Dear Donald,

I've got the list made up at last. Most of the books have hardback covers.

The Draughts World as you probably know was the best magazine ever on the game of draughts. That was the opinion from the both sides of the Atlantic. Full of up to date play at the time. These magazines were full of satirical remarks and ancedotes, especially when the yank's so Wylie for the first time.
