JMB's letters to George ...
« on: September 06, 2020, 03:20:15 PM »
I've finally started uploading all of Barrie's letters to George Llewelyn Davies that survive - some of the finest that he ever wrote to anyone, though we'll never know about the ones written to Michael. Peter included many of these JMB-George letters in his Morgue, together with his illuminating comments. However Nico had a number of others that must have passed Peter by; these are presumably now in the Beinecke collection, but before giving them to GOSH, I scanned them all. Deciphering Barrie's handwriting prior to 1917 (when he switched from right to left) is never easy, and where I couldn't read a word I've put [???] - so if anyone out there can do better than me, please feel free to add your best-guess in the comments window.

I'm just starting to read these letters, and am very grateful for the effort and time that's gone in for sharing them. So glad they didn't go the way of Michael's. Looking forward to seeing Barrie and George's relationship grow, and to get a deeper understanding from Peter. Though I'm often moved by Michael and Barrie's relationship, I always admired George the most for many reasons I think my heart has forgotten. I'll be glad to discover those again. Thank you!
