WSG to the Pall Mall Gazette, May 18, 1903, p. 2.  (Letter dated 16 May 1903)

WITH MANY APOLOGIES.

 

To the EDITOR of the PALL MALL GAZETTE.

 Sir – There is a line in your issue of yesterday that must have sent a thrill of joy through many a worthy home.  I refer to a line in an article headed "A Naval Battle," in which I am referred to as "the late W.S. Gilbert."  I am always sorry to spoil sport, but common candour compels me to admit (reluctantly) that I am still alive. 

  Yours faithfully,
    W.S. GILBERT.
