TCG Letter #1894

Florence Hadley
Hilary Tolkien
17 November 1940
Autograph Letter Signed
Hilary's Aunt Florence, who lives in Victoria BC, Canada, writes offering sympathies for the current situation in Europe. Letters are taking between three and five weeks to arrive there currently. She notes that they worry for the family and mentions the "raid on Coventry" which has destroyed much of the area around the city. She has sent a small parcel for Magdalen and hopes it will lift her Christmas spirit. She gives instructions for a chocolate pudding that is powdered.

She talks at length about what people are asking for, from writing paper and sugar, but she notes that sugar is more expensive to post than the cost of the sugar itself.
Wheelbarrows at Dawn, pp. 196-7
We note our thanks to TCG member Demis for supplying us with this letters details.
