Original signed handwritten letter to J(ohn B(ede) Dalley (representative of the Melbourne `Herald’ in London). Burdyke, Weekley, Kettering. 19th October. `Dear Mr Dalley, Sorry for the delay in answering your letter but I’ve been wandering since I saw you last- Vienna-Hungary & Brussels- & now I’m painting the last of the autumn in the country. I’m awfully sorry I won’t be up in town next Friday otherwise I should have loved the dinner & film…..I wonder if you’d be very helpful to me & if you’d distribute these cards to anyone you think would be interested – Ive sent them to most of the Australians in London, but there are certain folk like Sir Herbert & various press people who would be a great help if I could reach them. I hope to see you next week & we must organize some explorations in London- On a strictly Kentucky Shout basis if you please-so sorry about Friday. Yours sincerely Gladys Owen’

OWEN, Gladys
