KIPLING-41737-1.jpg CAROLINE KIPLING WRITES TO HER FRIEND ABOUT HER BROTHER AND HER NEW BABY
KIPLING (Caroline 'Carrie' Starr Balestier, 1862-1939, American born wife of Rudyard Kipling

Superb Long Autograph letter to Mrs Mary Hallock FOOTE (1847-1938, American Author and Illustrator) sending "a thousand thanks gracious Lady for your letter. We cherish your kind words which reached us this morning after our first night of 'snuffles'. My mother was attempting to convince us it was not pneumonia and quite usual and harmless when your testimony arrived. You will agree they sound serious won't you? Our little maiden sends you love, asking your pardon if she makes too bold, and hopes to welcome you one day to her very own home. Which we think of a Naulakha. 'Crows Nest' was invented by that all wise newspaper man who knows all one does not do, or think, or feel. Your interest in Benefits Forgot touches us nearly, for my brother cared so much that you should feel it to be an honest-word about the West. We used to arrange to make a pilgrimage to have a talk with you about the great, delightful dreadful West. We know Colorado best, and it was once while we were spending a few months there that Benefits Forgot was planned, but it was worked out in London. On the whole London is nearer the West than New York, it has always seemed to me. If I had been feeling up to rough travelling we should have returned from Vancouver slowly through all that fascinating part of our land, my husband is more anxious to know it well than any other part of America... The daughter - we call her Josephine - thrives, is strong and sturdy and we mean to keep her in the country so she may continue so. She has an English nurse, who promises well - she wrote to ask for the position. I don't expect you the credit the Statement for I well know its a fairy story in appearance. She can't have the baby nights though because of the cold - if only she could. I am learning to keep awake and my husband to sleep but it was not easy. We are very quiet here and go to bed at eight ourselves often ...", 4 sides 8vo., on black edged paper, Brattleboro, 19th February
