The Stark Munro Letters

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.7 stars; 14 reviews)

"The letters of my friend Mr. Stark Munro appear to me to form so connected a whole, and to give so plain an account of some of the troubles which a young man may be called upon to face right away at the outset of his career, that I have handed them over to the gentleman who is about to edit them. There are two of them, the fifth and the ninth, from which some excisions are necessary; but in the main I hope that they may be reproduced as they stand. I am sure that there is no privilege which my friend would value more highly than the thought that some other young man, harassed by the needs of this world and doubts of the next, should have gotten strength by reading how a brother had passed down the valley of shadow before him."
HERBERT SWANBOROUGH. LOWELL, MASS. - Summary by Arthur Conan Doyle (6 hr 49 min)

(5 stars)

One of ACD's best stories of the human co dictionary and studies if a life philosophy.

A great lesser known ACD story.
