The playwright writes concerning the "music of Peter Pan"

ALS signed “J. M. Barrie,” one page both sides, 4.5 x 7, Leinster Corner letterhead, April 13, 1905. Handwritten letter to Mrs. Pogson, in part: "There must be some mistake as I have been in communication with no one about the…music of Peter Pan. However, I presume it means that Mr. Bright has done so in my name, as he is entitled to do. I shall send him on your card, and it will be a pleasure to me if this matter is answered as you propose. If I am in London at the same time as you I shall be pleased to see you." In fine condition. Barrie refers to his agent and personal friend, Arthur Addison Bright, who killed himself in 1906 when irregularities in the payment of royalties to his clients surfaced. Letters by Barrie referring to his most famous work are scarce and highly desirable.
