Lot 642: ALS, one page, 8.75 x 11, no date [but February 12, 1922], Taormina villa Fontana Vecchia. Letter to British antiques and art dealer Albert Henry Stopford, in full: "Thank you very much; we will come on Wednesday. About tonight I am not sure, one feels so cold and unexpansive. Bitter this sky, with almond blossom." In fine condition, with central vertical and horizontal folds, a missing upper right corner tip, and a few small tears and creases along top edge. Published in The Letters of D. H. Lawrence, this letter is dated to February 12, 1922, and concludes with Lawrence's furtive allusion to 'Almond Blossom,' a poem he had written during his stay at the Fontana Vecchia in January of the previous year.
