WINDSOR (Duchess of, Wallis Simpson, 1896-1986, Wife of Edward VIII)

Exceptional long Autograph Letter Signed with initial to “Dearest Martha” saying that “the Duke and I have the letters about the Memorial to Charlie. We think it a wonderful idea. And so appropriate having it connected with the Boys Club at Locust Valley and I am sure as the letter says ‘It will be something that will please him’. I don’t suppose a day goes by that all of us who knew him well do not think of him... I simply cannot realize yet that I cannot sit down and write him nonsense and receive some in return. We are sending a much too small cheque to the fund. I wanted to tell you the reason we could not make it more, actually at the moment due to the cost of living here we are feeling rather pinched - and do not seem to be able to raise our income for the moment. We have just heard from Charlie Muir that he has persuaded Edith to come over with him we are thrilled and delighted that we are to see her - they, I believe are joining us in Biarritz - I have offered the attic in Paris for that part of her stay but I think she will stay at Charlie’s apartment which is more comfortable plus an extra man on the spot!... I know some people have cancelled their trips due to the Middle East. Monsieur Spaak... didn’t feel that was necessary - we have had the most awful (to be said like Ellen) summer - only about 10 days of sun... I have no gossip from here - that seems to be mainly among the Peerage - the English papers have a tasty bit each day about Lords and Ladies, the famous reserve seems to be ‘rocked n rolled’ over. Tender lover and we are truly sorry not to be able to give more towards such a wonderful thought for a wonderful person...”, 4 sides 4to., on separate sheets, Moulin de la Tuilerie headed paper, 4th August, no year, circa

I have got a new one called Something Fishy coming out at the end of November. I think it’s good.
