VIII.A.6.i: Other Notebooks: Miscellaneous Zurich Notes: Further Business Correspondence (1916)

Material Description and Collation

The manuscript is the top half of a sheet of blue lined graph paper, torn from a notebook, the horizontal edges of which are ragged, which is identical to MSS VIII.A.6.f, 6.g and 6.h, with writing in Joyce’s and an unidentified hand.


The sheet measures 7.7 x 10.4 cm.


The manuscript consists of a copy of a short unsigned business letter to an unidentified recipient on one side and a copy of another unsigned short business letter to friend, jokingly titled "Ultimatum".


Joyce probably wrote out this correspondence in 1916 as part of his exercises in Greek.


This manuscript has been reproduced in black and white photo-facsimile on JJA 3.299–300.
