Fine Typed Letter Signed ‘Rebecca W.’ to Diana MARR-JOHNSON (1908-2007, Social Advocate, Novelist and Playwright, niece of Somerset Maugham), apologising for not having written earlier “to thank you for that most consoling lunch.

Not only was I deeply fond of Pamela, but the thought of how much happier she might have been if things had gone differently, and how little I had seen of her lately, for stupid reasons (my being in American when she was here, and t’other way round) - all this depresses me, and you lifted the weight. It occurs to me that I may have sounded rather vague about the trustee business, and that it may interest you. The trustee business, I mean, that had made me see that Liza couldn’t do anything but what she did. About fifteen years or so or more I was named as trustee of a trust fund by a woman who died leaving an adopted child, whom she had named as beneficiary of the trust fund... My co-trustee was an inoffensive solicitor of good repute. My solicitor discovered that the dead woman had induced this solicitor of hers to advance her money out of the trust fund which she had no right to have. My solicitor then explained to me that I must sue this solicitor, unless he replaced the money, because if I left matters as they were the adopted child would have the right to sue me for negligence, and so would her heirs! - and in time the sum claimed might be quite large, with interest added to it...”, 2 sides 8vo., Ibstone House, Ibstone headed paper, 27th June
