Susan Beever (1805-1893) of Thwaite, Coniston, a close friend and neighbour at Brantwood of John Ruskin
[ Thwaite, Coniston. ] 'Thursday'. [ Dated in a contemporary hand 'June 1892.' ]
2pp., 12mo. Bifolium on grey paper. In good condition, lightly aged. She hopes that the coming Saturday will be fine: 'If not, I hope some other day - but how cold again - For the first time I went out into the garden yesterday - & to my joy & amazement heard a Chaffinch sing! I had not hoped to hear a Bird.' She is glad they are all happy, and that they found the plant (Latin name) that 'grows at Coniston'.
