My three pounds
Note from T.S. Eliot, a Chapter from Anecdotes about 20th Century Authors

Roy Campbell, who tells this story, was at this time `chief air-raid warden of Post 33 in St. Pancras district'. The Ministry of Information was then housed in the Senate House of the University of London, and in the immediate neighbourhood were the offices of Faber and Faber, where T. S. Eliot worked.
