Typed Letter Signed with Autograph salutation, subscription and annotation to Miss Pearse, thanking her for her "charming letter ... In the *autobiography, I was particularly trying to make younger people more aware of how completely different everything was before the second world war. Although I was born as recently as 1920, I have always thought that the first world war, despite the appalling casualties, did not have anything like the same effect upon English society and institutions as Hitler's war did. There really is a great gulf between the pre-war world that existed up till 1940, and the world which succeeded ii ... the car you refer to must have been a De Dion Bouton. I know my father had one during the Edwardian decade ... What a great blessing it is ... to have had a happy childhood ...", his annotation says "*Days Gone By - Author of many books including Watership Down", 1 side oblong 8vo., on a folded card with a picture of Church Street and Market Place, Whitchurch, 14th November
