Hello Andrew! Over a week ago I re-emailed the pictures from Blot on Peter Pan and Neil and Tintinnabulum, but I assume you still didnít receive them. Is there another email I can try? Feel free to private message me if necessary.

Did Gerrie dislike JMB? By sound of it in her interviews, she didnít seem to care for JMB at all and didnít want him around her family much, which is why he had no influence on Jackís children and didnít seem to be around them much. And if she did dislike JMB, I wonder why?

Hi Andrew, I emailed you pictures of the pages of The Blot on Peter Pan and Neil and Tintinnabulum on Sunday. Just wondering if you got it. If I need to resend the pages please let me know.

100% agree! Platonic love can be as beautiful as romantic love, and should be emphasized more in media!

I personally donít think Barrie ever wanted to get married. Right before he married Mary, he wrote about a nightmare he had about being married. And Barrie didnít seem to want to spend a lot of time with Mary either. It is possible that he just married the wrong person, but since he never tried to re-marry again, I highly doubt this. Although you could argue that he wanted to marry Sylvia LD, but if he actually would have gone through it if Sylvia wanted to, will forever be unknown. Would he have done it because he wanted to have a romantic relationship with her or so the boys could have a stable family unit (for the time period), again weíll never know and is up to interpretation.

Would anyone consider trying to record Yellow Week at Stanway from the BFI website and trying to upload it to YouTube, or another video sharing website, again so we can all see it? Since I live in the US I unfortunately canít do it!

Thank you for the info Andrew! Itís tragic that John had to go through that! I think the exceptionally poor treatment Iím sure he received at the institution was a major cause of his early death. If he was treated with the care and respect that is done for autistic children and adults today, he would have lived a much longer life.
Cynthiaís letter about Johnís death reminds me of Queen Mary of Teckís letters about the death of Prince John, who was also autistic, basically saying the exact same thing, that she was glad that Prince John was no longer suffering (from his epilepsy, which caused his death), but she did later say in her diary: ďmiss the dear child very much indeed."

100% agree with everything you said!  :D And yes it is fun to work in theatre! I highly recommend it if that kind of thing interests you!
Also thanks for the condolences about me and my father.

I recently got some books that are connected to JMB, and I will continue to get more, and I was wondering how I can send pictures of interesting things I find in these books so they can be posted on the database for all to see?

One of them is The Letters of JMB, and there are wonderful letters in the book that everyone should read! Like his letters to one of his godsons Peter Scott, and the letters to Peterís mother Kathleen.
Also Barrie mentions Michael Davies in various letters, that are not even in Andrewís book, that I think people would definitely be interested in seeing!
Also I just really recommend you get this book! Itís so great!

Also I got the books The Flying Carpet and The Treasure Ship where Barrie contributed stories basically writing about Michael, but calling the character Neil.
Neil and Tintinnabulum, the story in The Flying Carpet, is mentioned in Andrewís book a lot, but The Blot on Peter Pan, from The Treasure Ship, isnít mentioned at all and I didnít know existed until I read Mackailís biography, and this story definitely confirms that Neil is meant to be Michael Davies!

So it would be great if these things were on the database for everyone to read!
