Sold together with a letter from the artist to the vendor's father "Thank you for your letter & for enclosing a cheque in payment for a print. The edition is very nearly exhausted because of the publicity the print has received. All the available printed copies have been sold, but another batch is now being printed & when this laborious operation has been completed, (each copy is printed by foot!) I will send you a copy. I trust you will not mind waiting for about three weeks as the operation is not only laborious but rather slow. Yours sincerely, Edward Bawden, Brick House, Gt. Bardfield, Braintree, Esssex." in original stamped manuscript envelope.
