Any 'new' work from Raymond Chander is a gift from heaven. Please let the work be seen. It can only add to his greatness and while admittedly that lily needs no gilding, it will attract new fans to his works. Oh please! I love his stories so dearly! Let us have this one more.

Early work or not, THE PRINCESS AND THE PEDLAR apparently is a work of real importance in the *oeuvre* of Raymond Chandler, and the world deserves to see and read it. Please reconsider and grant permission for the play to be performed, and perhaps published; there is a large audience for it.

The best option, I believe, would be to present the play in Canada, where most of the Philp Marlowe novels are in the public domain except for POODLE SPRINGS.

It is a dishonour to the memory of Sir Raymond to allow this, his little known work, to molder without ever having seen the light of day.

The prospective producers' devotion to all things Chandler is obvious, and their enthusiasm contagious.

This is Chandler, man. Given all we already know about him, I'm pretty sure his reputation won't be sullied by the performance of a hundred year old script. The fact that the operetta is "not representative of Chandler's oeuvre" makes it all the more interesting to fans. Or is this simply about money?
