The note was given to Hermione Scott (Blackwood was married name) at the age of 7 and the original envelope is still extant and was with the note. The note was kept in the safe for many years at Blackwoods, the Publishers. In 1940, during the Blitz, Paternoster Row was destroyed by bombs but the note survived in the fireproof safe!! It was kept in the family for many years and the fuller history is attached. What a fantastic story. The note is clean (not washed) and although there are creases, it is just shy of VF. The offered price seem slow, so don’t let this pass by.
