Fine long Autograph Letter Signed to Miss IONIDES (Helen Euphrosyne, 1871-1967, Daughter of Constantine Alexander, 1833-1900, Art Patron and Collector) starting "Who would a poet understand must first visit the poet's land." and going on "To be in Athens is to realize how the unfettered life of an Ant, obeying all the laws of nature, grew, blossomed, faded and alas died. So much is it the case that one wonders whether such marvels were due to any mortal hand, or to the Gods themselves. However, they tell us that this and that was made at such and such a time, or in such and such a moment, and they even stick labels thereon. Phew! Who cares. Fancy Nature labelling her rose. Was then an art created to Bradshaw? Or was it not under suitable conditions, true environment, that the nursery well raised her child? In the harbour the wee 'Ophris' (renamed 'Turine') bubbles like a cork. With a sturdy Captain and crew of eleven we board her tomorrow and plough the waves to the isles in the sea. With every kind thought to Miss Stevens and yourself. Yours sincerely, Howard Carter. Perhaps better known as 'Kolokithi' ...", 4 sides 8vo., with original autograph envelope, Hotel de la Grande-Bretagne, Athens, 10th September
