 Item — Box: 4, Folder: 4
Call Number: MSS 14 , Series II

Scope and Contents

Drawing is of Harmouth harbor and depicts Edward's lonely white cottage on one side of the harbor and the populated port on the other. Below the drawing, in black felt-tip pen is written: "Any stranger coming for the first time to the small port of Harmouth who might wonder who lived in the small white cottage which stood alone on the far side of the harbour had only to ask and they would be told, 'Edward lives there with his grandfather.' All the town knew Edward and his grandfather, though only in a distant sort of way; for people could not quite understand why anyone should choose to live in such a lonely place when they could be cosily crowded together with everyone else in the town." Signed on the bottom right in black ink.
