WODEHOUSE EXPLAINS THE LOCALES OF THE JEEVES STORIES. Dated Sept. 24, 1959 and on Wodehouse's Remsenburg letterhead, the letter reads in full: Dear Mr Nelson. Thank you for your letter. I wish I could give you some definite information about the locale of the Jeeves stories, but I never have any actual place in mind when I write them. Aunt Dahlia's house in Worcestershire is imaginary, though of course based to a certain extent on country houses I have known. Valley Fields, which is the scene of some of my stories, is Dulwich, where I was at school, but the actual houses in Mulberry Grove are invented. I always think an author takes a big chance when he writes of any identifiable place, as it is so easy to make mistakes. Especially in my case, as I am in America writing of England. It leads to letters beginning "Sir. Are you aware that the statue of the Mayor, described by you as in Market Square, East Nottleton, is in reality in Fishmonger Place?" Yours sincerely [signed] P.G. Wodehouse Long Island, NY: Sept. 24, 1959. One page (7 1/4 x 9 1/2 inches) on Wodehouse letterhead. Two light folds, otherwise fine. An illuminating and revealing letter giving insight into the settings of some of Wodehouse's most popular works. Bookseller Inventory # 1680
