A reply to an early fan letterHousman answers one of his early fan letters: "Dear Sir, I am much obliged by your kindness in writing to me, and glad that my verses have pleased you. I am yours faithfully A. E. Housman". The letter dates two years after Housman had published A Shropshire Lad, his first and at that stage only book (excepting one university pamphlet). A second edition of A Shropshire Lad was published in 1898, perhaps the occasion of the fan letter.
