Letter from Edward H. Woodall to William Robinson

Scope and Content

Written from La Selva, Brancolar, Nice, [France]. Manuscript

Gertrude Jekyll’s death is a sad loss to them both; he asks if Robinson was able to go to her funeral; he regretted he could not attend; she was a year younger than he is, and he was 90 in November; now he and Robinson are the sole survivors of Reynolds Hole at Caunton where they first met ages ago; gardening at Scarbro [Scarborough] and Nice keeps him going; lack of interest kills; the weather is fine and he wishes Robinson could walk with him in his valley, where spring flowers are opening daily
