Letters, 1930 Aug. 18-1930 Nov. 2, New York.

The collection comprises two letters to George S. Napier in Edinburgh. The first letter is a nostalgic recollection of "the old days," including Napier's visits to their homes in Buckingham Street and Adelphy Terrace. Elizabeth Pennell remembers the drawings of Edinburgh made by her husband for Napier, which despite being "very early work...are among my husband's finest." She is glad he bought her book, Life and letters of Joseph Pennell, and still has the articles they wrote for Harper's so long ago (1930 Aug. 18, 2 p.). The second letter mentions her involvement in other works to be published soon, such as the catalog of Pennell's etchings by Wuerth, and a Pennell bibliography for which Napier's list came on time. The letter includes appreciative comments about the photographer James Craig Annan and the engraver Timothy Cole.
