Michaelís 1916 Drawing
« on: August 19, 2019, 04:36:49 PM »
I just read a letter from Nico to Mary Hodgson from the 25th of November 1961, I canít read all the words, but basically on page 1 he mentions a comic letter dated 24th of August 1916, ďWith the picture at the end drawn by Michael.Ē

Where is this comic letter and drawing now?

Sadly I fear it has gone the way of all flesh...  or rather paper, into the wastebasket whence no traveller returns. I bought all Nico's material back in 1978, but such a letter was not among it, otherwise I would have scanned it (before giving it to GOSH in 2004). It might be worth checking with Beinecke if by some chance they've acquired it by some other route, but I sincerely doubt it ...

Thank you for replying Andrew! Sad we will never get to see the drawing!
