Autograph Letter, Signed, from Charles Ricketts to Laurence Hodson.
(London N.p. 1902) (1)pp. letter, together with the original envelope postmarked December 20th, 1902. A brief letter from Vale Press founder, illustrator, and designer Charles Ricketts to the private press collector and patron Laurence Hodson, offering greetings for the holiday season. This letter was written after the Wolverhampton Art and Industrial Exhibition of 1902, of which Hodson had been Chairman, and Ricketts reflects on the event: "Shannon & I have hears that the committee have been making pigs of themselves, I need not say how we regret that this should be the case, or add, that the Exhibition is likely to be remembered with pleasure by those to whom art is a pleasure and to whom, it must have seemed inside its inevitable limitations an attempt to do the right thing." Letter is creased from being folded to fit into the envelope, else fine.
