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

Fine Typed Letter Signed "Alan C" with autograph subscription and salutation, to Cyril Wood OBE saying he is "distressed to learn about the trouble you have been having and the fact you were in hospital. A torn retina is a very serious matter. You may remember my dear wife suddenly developed a torn retina whilst we were in the West Indies. It is a pity you could not get to Moorfields Eye Hospital as Stallard is such a great surgeon. However, I believe that the secret of the success of an operation for a torn retina depends 50% on the patient. Dear Gladys was marvellous; she lay still without moving on her side for three weeks and after two operations she got her sight back completely ...", 1 side 8vo., Tarrant Rushton Airfield, nr Blandord, Dorset, 25th May
