CARROLL (Lewis, Charles Dodgson, 1832-1898, Author of 'Alice in Wonderland')

Fine long Autograph Letter Signed to Butler, the father of his young friend Olive Butler explaining "an (apparent) liberty which I propose to take this week, in sending Olive a copy of 'Sylvie and Bruno Concluded'.

So let me assure you that I have no such idea, and that I still abide loyally by the decision to which you and Mrs Butler have come ..." he continues that it would be "a great pity, for no better reason than that you and I hold different views as to the expediency of friendships between old gentlemen and young ladies, to leave my gift incomplete ..." and he hopes that Olive will be allowed to accept Volume II, he ends with his wishes for Christmas, 3 sides 8vo., The Chestnuts, Guildford, 25th December

COBHAM (Sir Alan J., 1894-1973, Aviator)

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
