Letter to the Editor of
Private Eye

[Not published]

The Editor,
Private Eye,
22 Greek Street,
London W1.

London, November 3, 1983

Dear Gnome,

Y OU HAVE not published my enclosed letter correcting the (no doubt unintentional) error in your news report of September 9 attributing two very strange books, None dare call it conspiracy and The controversy of Zion to my pen.
I have never written any such books. To suggest that I have is defamatory.
Please publish the attached letter in your next issue. As The Guardian is learning at this very hour of writing, I am suddenly in a litigious frame of mind. These come round at unpredictable intervals. I am sure you too will want to come round.

Yours faithfully,
David Irving
