Full text of Rudyard Kipling's letter

Posted: Updated:

Dear Madam:

I have been absent from home for some days. Hence the delay in answering yours of no date, in regard to my account of the Law of the Jungle."

I am afraid that all that code in its outlines has been manufactured to meet "the necessities of the case" though a little of it is bodily taken from (Southern) Esquimaux rules for the division of spoils.

In fact, it is extremely possible that I have helped myself promiscuously but at present cannot remember from whose stories I have stolen.

Very sincerely, Rudyard Kipling
