[Mrs Patrick Campbell.] Autograph Letter Signed ('Beatrice Stella Campbell') to the Midlands brewer and art collector Laurence William Hodson of Compton Hall, entreating him to let her have a picture by Sir Edward Burne-Jones
3pp., 12mo. Bifolium. In good condition. In envelope addressed to 'Laurence W. Hodson | Compton Hall | near Wolverhampton'. The letter begins: 'I beg that when you are in London you will let me see you. I have a little story to tell you about the beautiful little unfinished ('Psyche') picture of Sir Edwards [i.e. Burne-Jones] that you possess. Perhaps when you have heard it you will think more kindly of my wish to buy it from you - Please let me call on you - I will use no wiles! - Simply I will tell you the true story of the dear picture & you will see that at least I have a slight right to approach you on the matter.' She ends in asking him to forgive her for troubling him.
