Call Number: MSS 22

Scope and Contents

Cooke thank Redgrave for his "kind repeated thoughts." Cooke's mother is unwell and Cooke is suffering from a headache after his own recovery from a "Bronchial attack." Cooke writes of the pheasants on his land. He "must tell Lady Dorothy some day of [his] move to East-Sussex & how he shall go in for Conifers and American[?] plants which will blend so harmoniously with [his] woods & rocks." Cooke writes that Redgrave will have heard from "Gilbert" that the "weather in Paris is much the same as here - How capital a young man to fight his way in foreign parts & become a citizen of the world!" Goodall has visited Cooke, walking "all the way from Camden Town." Cooke must "keep to [his] room." A post-script at the top of the letter reads "I would like to see Richard but well know he is busy."
