The Plomer mss. II, 1960-1964, comprise the letters of Ian Lancaster Fleming, 1908-1964, author, to William Charles Franklyn Plomer, 1903-1973, author. Written at intervals from his home Goldeneye at Oracabessa, Jamaica, from The London Clinic, from Old Mitre Court, Fleet Street, London, from the hospital, and from Dudley Hotel at Brighton, Fleming discusses the death of Jonathan Cape and talks about his books: Kuwait, The Spy who loved me, You only live twice, The Man with the golden gun, while protesting the state of his health. In his last letter he concluded "this is the last Bond ... for I have run out of both puff and zest."
