Beatrix Potter Autograph Letter Signed re Her Father
Beatrix Potter autograph letter signed, datelined Sawrey, Ambleside on 12 March 1914, shortly after her marriage to William Heelis. She writes to Millie Warne, the sister of Potter’s fiance and publisher Norman Warne, who died in 1905. Potter writes mostly about the ill health of her father, in part, It is a long time since I have heard where you are? You were with Edith when you last wrote I think – or she with you. I was up not long ago, but was too much worried about my father, to go anywhere. He has failed very much since Christmas and the doctor does not seem at all sure what is the matter with him – He is too old for any operation – 81 – and it is thought kindest to let him alone; he has got a good nurse, a person from Windemere whom we had before, so she knows them well. It is most unfortunate that he did not keep well till warm weather, when they had fully made up their minds to come again to Bowness – I rather hoped to settle them for good. The doctor thinks he may be moved thru later; but it will mean a good deal of travelling in the meantime. I have kept well since Christmas; I had several small colds, but so far – thank goodness – I have escaped influenza. It has been very general in the village, I think half the inhabitants have had their 3 days in bed; but it is not severe except amongst children, who have had bad throats. There was 3 inches of snow this morning, but warmer; & presently turned to torrents of slush, quite flooding the rows. It must have been a trying night for lambs, we have 5 so far. The garden is much too advanced, double daffodils are just coming out. / I remain with love yrs aff / Beatrix Heelis. ” Four page letter on bifolium, card-style stationery measures 4.375″ x 7 folded.
