Is there anything indicating that Chandler, as I thought, wrote "The Pencil" (posthumously published in the London DAILY MAIL as "Marlowe Takes on the Syndicate") after putting POODLE SPRINGS aside? And if so, and if, as he wrote to Guinness, he thought Linda "the wrong girl," did he, in your opinion, resurrect Ann because he thought her to be the
"right," or at least a more right, girl?
