Two pages, 8vo, very good condition. Text: Thanks you for your letter. I've no idea what paper you saw that reported the councillor's dislike of my sketches - actually, at the meeting only one man expressed some demur about them, and (poor man) he was defeated by the otherwise general approval of the committee, which decided to go ahead with the scheme I proposed. I am doing the final designs now, and weaving will start in the autumn. We go off to Italy shortly, and will be back in early October, so it you care to pay us a visit in later October, or any time after, we would be pleased to see you. Note: A letter form Elisabeth Frink from the same source as this is addressed to Mr. O.E. Roberts of Budleigh Salterton. She mentions a sculpture he is working on. And sculptures of hers he wants to buy.
