Writing from St. Augustine, northern Florida,
Wednesday, 26 June 2019
Hello. I am just writing to inform you among other things, as a good friend and customer, of progress on my last three works, including the biographies of Heinrich Himmler and Winston Churchill, vol.3, all of which are complete or written in draft. Over the years I have carved out my own niche among historians; you might like to take in briefly what Peter Mayer, the late CEO and publisher of Penguin Books, said explaining his decision to continue publishing me, despite hostile attacks from those whom we all suspect of interfering in the background.
My work on Heinrich Himmler is reaching a conclusion; I am already editing page 620 of the final manuscript. I have plumbed his life, and drilled deep down into personal letters and archives which other authors did not reach. Sometimes we historians reach conclusions with no evidence at all or worse, against the evidence governments want us to believe.
As simple as, How did he die? There were surely enough witnesses. And yet I have concluded differently, which will lead to more hatred of, or annoyance, at least irritation at me.... I am incorrigible: can't be bought, and can't be bought off. Exegi monumentum aere perennius, the ancient poet Horace wrote (Ode 3, 30). I have written around thirty books. Governments and lawyers can no longer hurt me: they already took everything. The principal actors are long deceased too.
So this: some of you have wondered why my personal website fell silent for a few days earlier this month. I had come back to this house in northern Florida planning to revise the final Himmler chapters, and was struck down by a mysterious bug which took me, an Englishman, to the local hospital's Emergency wing. Here fine American doctors carried out a whole raft of tests and X-rays and have finally come up with a [prognosis] of kidney issues, curing which will make me feel better and more comfortable - until the hospital bills come. As a UK citizen, I carried no insurance, but I intend to meet my obligations.
My work on Heinrich Himmler continues, and will come out this year, a beautiful production like all the others we produce. Please consider assisting me to meet the hospital's bills, by sending a donation, anonymous if you wish. By way of thanks I will sign and send you a rare 30-minute archive DVD of the failed attempt to destroy me made in 1977 by the late Mr. David Frost on the BBC, in which endeavour the British press at least decided he had failed.
Yours very sincerely,
