UTTLEY (Alice Jane, 1884-1976, Author of the 'Little Grey Rabbit' books)

Fine Typed Letter Signed with Autograph Postscript to Mrs Mackay, saying that when she was in bed the previous night "a book slipped on my bedside table and down fell my small travelling writing case. I picked it up and put back the many papers which had fallen out. I came across various old documents, long forgotten and among them was a letter from you. I do not remember answering it ... I found a note about a letter from your son, Phillip, long ago. I think perhaps you first met my work in Housewife, - you ask me about this -, for one or two stories were taken by Housewife ... I may have been away from home, as it was in this special writing case. I hope you read 'The Swans Fly Over' which came out at Christmas. Another book of essays is written and will come out next autumn or a little later. I wonder if you have any little children now, perhaps they are all grown up. Everything changes so quickly I have to stick to the small changeless delights that I know so well. I have been gardening this afternoon, and that is a pleasure. 'Grey Rabbit finds a Shoe' comes out on the 28th, and I sent an advance copy to the Baby Prince, - which was acclaimed with pleasure by the Queen. It will have to wait until he is old enough to be read to of course . I am glad your children like Owls. I adore them ..." with the postscript that she may have written as "Plough & Harrow rings a bell, but it may be the childhood association ...", 2 sides oblong 8vo., Thackers, Beaconsfield, 21st March
