Practice and Precept
Typescript draft of a script for the three-act play 'Practice and Precept' written by D.V. Goode. A number of early works may have been written by Deevy under the pseudonym 'D.V. Goode', although the authorship remains unclear. These include 'Practice and Precept', 'Let Us Live' and 'The Firstborn', written between 1914 and 1919. There is some speculation that they could be the work of Deevy's sister, Josie, with whom she lived in Blackheath in South East London.
