Friendship by Post
The Beatrix Potter Gallery currently has the fine lady’s correspondence on display. I would certainly enjoy reading Ms. Potter’s letters. They are reportedly sad at times but also reveal her humor and energy and are sometimes illustrated as well. I feel certain that my mail artist friends would appreciate the fact that Beatrix Potter was one of their company. Although I do hope to do some traveling in the next couple of years I do not foresee making it to England before the show wraps up in November. I shall therefore content myself with images I can find online. However delightful they may be though, it remains that the letters giving the greatest pleasure are the ones found in my own mailbox or sent by my own hand.
