Dear Lorna Style
Thank you for your letter. If you can sent the Maori Girl along by Post rolled & registered I will gladly sign it for you or if you prefer to bring it do so. I don’t remember painting it – probably about 1900?
I am very grieved to hear of Maud’s death. I had not known it. She was such a grand person. She last wrote from her new home, Brownes, which I gather was in a restricted area & I being in indifferent health at the time, we did not meet. You must all miss her terribly.
I am very interested to hear you are working with Cedric Morris – how wise of you! Tell him I hope he will come & visit us soon. Do let me have a p.c
Yours sincerely Frances Hodgkins
