Will Letters

Lyricist Will Letters wrote Florrie Forde’s great hits Kelly From The Isle Of Man (known in the United States as Has Anybody Here Seen Kelly?) (with C.W. Murphy, 1909); and Flanagan (with C.W. Murphy, 1910).

With Fred Godfrey, Letters wrote Molly O’Morgan (The Irish-Italian Girl) (1909), which Ella Retford sang with enormous success. Other known Letters and Godfrey collaborations, all from 1910, are: I Wish I Were You, To-Night (with Alf. J. Lawrance); I’ve Got Plenty Of Books To Read (Send Me Along A Girl); Take Me There (with J.C. Moore); and Your Father And Mother Are Irish.
