Autograph Letter Signed 'Christine & John' in her hand, to Mrs Winifred Arnold of Little Baddow, near Chelmsford, asking "what little bird told you about our Golden Wedding? ... You can imagine the pleasure of unwrapping layer after layer ... to find the treasures inside! The Gold Coins inside the glasses, - which as it happens we are very short of ... Liqueur Chocolates ... John cannot bear sticky jam pots, I always decant ... into a pretty pot like yours", she had no idea "your eyes were so bad ... difficult for chores ... I am trying to write this letter in a large hand", she continues "What a shame about the R.A. John was on the Selection Committee this year ... more pictures than ever sent in & fewer than ever accepted. It is hard work being on the Council, but John enjoys it", they are having a very quiet celebration "with friends in Suffolk on the 30th and we will drink your health in your Gold foiled Muscatel at the week-end ...", 4 sides 8vo., Bottengoms Farm, Wormingford, Essex, 27th May

Winifred Arnold attended John's courses at Flatford. In May 1970 he wrote a note for her own catalogue, "I remember her pressing me for instruction in perspective and other professional aspects ... but I fended off these requests ... objects were as she saw them and she made them conform to her vision ".
