Lot 795: ALS signed "Cyn and Lil," three pages on adjoining sheets, 3.5 x 6.5, Alitalia letterhead, no date but circa 1967–1968. Letter to her son Julian and their housekeeper Dorothy 'Dot' Jarlett. In part: "Just flying over the gorgeous blue Mediterranean…we've just left Rome airport we arrived half an hour late and were bumped around a bit at the moment over the Mediterranean—can't wait to arrive it is beautiful and sunny and I'm sorry I put this suit on now I sweating like mad—I hope everything's OK at home although nothing much could have happened since we left—we were in plenty of time for our flight at London but the rush was awful at Rome, anyway we've made it. So far—missing Julian already but I think the journey would have been awful for him—it's bad enough for grown ups. I'm writing to let you know I'm still thinking about you, have a nice time while we're away won't you, behave yourselves and 'DON'T WORK TOO HARD' now that's an order Sergeant Jarlett." In fine condition. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks.
