JOHNSON-40897-1.jpg
JOHNSON (Amy, 1903-1941, Aviator)

Fine Autograph Letter signed "Mickey" to "Dear Miss Glass" thanking her for the kindness of the Glass family on her birthday, "I did so much appreciate all your sweet thoughts & lovely gifts. The roses were beautifully fresh after they had been put in water & I brought them down here with me as I came yesterday for a week. Thank you so much for your letter & wishes & for the lovely flowers, also for the help you probably gave Girlie & Sheila with their charming presents. I'm sorry I didn't write to you sooner, but I have explained to Girlie & Sheila how terribly busy I have been ... I had my people in town on my birthday & then had to pack & move down here yesterday, I spent a busy afternoon & evening joy-riding & trying to create local interest. I had one awful disappointment on my birthday - I had to decide to have my poor dog Rough destroyed. I believe you know he got run over some time ago but his leg would have mended all right if only the vet had done it properly. He had him for two months, & the leg was in a terrible state when I finally saw it. The vet simply dropped me a note suddenly to say he had sold his practice & had taken Rough somewhere else. I went straight down to see him & the new vet was horrified at the state of the leg & said it would never be better & that Rough would probably die if I left him. I'm afraid you have had a lot of trouble wiht your ankele. What awful bad luck ... This is a delightful place ...", 4 sides 4to., Minigary, Fairlight Cove, Hastings, 3rd July
