BADEN-POWELL (Lady Olave, 1889-1977, World Chief Guide, Chief Commissioner for the Girl Guides, wife of Sir Robert)

Interesting but very badly Typed Letter Signed signed to Mrs Morley marked "Personal" saying she "could HIT myself, I am so CROSS with myself for not coming to see you to say good-bye or anyhow for not even TELEPHONING as I meant to to have a little last word before we left. But we rushed up to Kandy, you know, and when I got back there wasn't a moment. All the same qui s'excuse s'accuse - and I DO feel very ashamed ... you DO KNOW ... I mean every word of what I say in this accompanying letter, which is a more of less 'official' one of thanks ... Just use it as you like - put it in the press if you care to .. perhaps you would just like to ask Lady Stubbs what she thinks as possibly SHE might like to say something too about how pleased she was with the RALLY, as it was the first one with her as actually Island Commr. ... I know that all that Rally and the good state of Guiding NOW in the Island is so largely your doing, and though each succeeding Commissioner - Lady Southern and then Mrs Wodeman - all 'did their bit' THIS moment's organisation and the Rally is YOUR 'pigeon' - and I do congratulate you personally .. it is just splendid to see the thing so big so keen and so alive, and I am sure that Lady Stubbs will do all she can too to help you .. It HAS been so nice seeing you personally again like this and in the midst of your own triumph in your work ...", 2 sides 4to., P & O.S.N.Co. headed paper, S.S. 'Corfu', 18th November
