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

Excellent Typed Letter Signed signed to Mrs Dickson mared "Private and Confidential" with a note that it is "(a SECRET I mean between you and me, and not for my niece to be told of!!)" thanking her for having her niece "a stranger ... to stay with you this month, and for these weeks whilst she has to be in Edinburgh. It is just MOST comforting to feel that she will be in kindly sympathetic hands ... during what is bound to be a trying time. I am so fond of her ..." and asking her for "another 'good turn'. I know that IT IS rather nice, when you are feeling ill (not that I have ever BEEN ill! - but I have seen others in Nursing Homes!!) to have FLOWERS which mean kind thoughts from friends ..." and so she is sending a cheque with the request that she could "ask a florist to send along a little bunch ... and then perhaps after a few days a few more fresh ones ... May I just leave this in your hands as I am just flying off (literally) tomorrow to Switzerland ... I shall hear no doubt in due course how the operation goes off, from my daughter ... I do hope that her hearing will be restored ...", 2 sides 4to., Hampton Court Palace, East Molesley, 2nd November
