(Dame Laura, 1877-1970, Artist)
Autograph Letter Signed to 'Dear Mr Richardson',
apologizing that "she has been completely absorbed in certain work", but is "extremely interested to hear of the picture of Staithes ... when in your neighbourhood I shall certainly avail myself of your kind invitation ... Both Mr Knight and I join in thanking you for your words of appreciation ... With kindest regards", 1 side folio, 16 Langford Place, St. John's Wood, N.W.8, 28th July
a little crinkled but perfectly legible
We think Dame Laura's correspondent may a near relative of Frederick Stuart Richardson, (1855-1934, R.W.S.) of the Staithes Group, and painter of fine seascapes based on the Yorkshire fishing village.
