BARRIE-41786-1.jpg BARRIE WRITES TO THE ARCHITECT ABOUT THE CENOTAPH
BARRIE (Sir James M., 1860-1937, Novelist & Dramatist, Writer of ‘Peter Pan’)

Exceptional Autograph letter signed, to Sir Edwin LUTYENS (1869-1944, Architect, probably best known for designing the Cenotaph) saying that “the ‘cenotaph’ crows in beauty as one steals down alone o’nights to look at it, which becomes my habit, I stand cogitating why and how it is so noble a thing. It is how the war has moved you and lifted you above yourself. I think it was Milton who described poetry as ‘thoughts that voluntarily move harmonious numbers’. This is a harmonious number and I feel proud of it and you..”, 2 sides 8vo., 2 Robert Street, Adelphi, WC2, 6th August
