Violet Mary Elliot-Murray-Kynynmound (1889-1965), daughter of the Earl of Minto and wife of newspaper proprietor John Jacob Astor, 1st Baron Astor of Hever. 1 page, 8vo. Large coffee stain to one corner not affecting signature. She thanks her correspondent for a 'nice letter with regard to my year of office as President of the Women's Journalist Association', regretting that she was, 'in reality, so inactive a President. [...] I did so very much enjoy my first introduction to the Society and looked forward to meeting the Members again, but I lead a very busy life, and unluckily something always interfered and prevented my attending the luncheons. | However I have carried away a very happy recollection of your most interesting Society and its Members.'
