ACTON (Sir Harold, 1904-1994, Poet, Novelist, Historian and Connoisseur)

Autograph Letter Signed to ‘Dear Buckley’ thanking him for writing to him “about my Memoirs, which might strike some people as conceited but, as I explained, I had to defend myself against sharp shooters in the shrubberies! One’s recollections of Eton are among the most vivid, and your extract from the old ‘Tatler’ brought them back to me - Feversham and Schreiber I remember well, and the former’s mother Lady Marjorie Beckett, the type that Rubens would have admired. No doubt you have seen Jacqueline Lancaster’s book about Brian Howard who was so brilliant and full of promise in his youth. Dyson’s and the fantastic Miss Alexander Rowland’s, Little Brown’s, Queen’s Eyot, Datchet, naughtiness under the arches, Conybeare and Micky Bland, C.O.Bevan and myriads of others are far clearer to me than last week’s tourist visitors (who come here by the dozen with their Cameras... our Etonian friends were originals and individuals). I seldom stray from Florence but, when I do, I should be delighted to look you up...”, 2 sides folio, La Pietra, Florence, Via Bolognese 120, 17th July
