FLINT (Sir William Russell, R.A., 1880-1969, Artist and Illustrator)

Fine Autograph letter signed to "My dear Sandilands" saying that he has "done an awful thing - lost that child's drawing amid the plethora of Xmas cards and calendars! I'll find it though. I had a good ponder over it & really I don't think there is anything very special about it. A little more decorative than the average, but that's about all. I hope the parents won't be dismally disappointed. I like your Praise of the Lakes, a darling little anthology ...", sending thanks and best wishes and ending with a postscript that he expects "the child's parents will exclaim 'the man's a fool'", 1 side folio, Peel Cottage, Campden Hill, W8 headed paper, 26th December

George Sommerville Sandilands published his Anthology "In Praise of the Lakes" in 1953
