Letters from Arcadia

A letter dated May 25th 1939, just one of the many hundreds of important pieces of paper that I will be selling from cabinets and open boxes on my stall at Bloomsbury Ephemera Fair on Sunday 27th October.

The author of the letter writes, 'I have asked Ogden Smith in St. James's St. to send you a few dry flies which I hope you and Ann will accept.  I don't know if Adolf Hitler will allow anybody to fish this year but if so I trust one or two of these flies will help you or Ann or both of you to land a monster trout!'
