Both letters in good condition, on aged paper. ONE: 3pp., 12mo. Bifolium. In envelope addressed by the Prince to 'E. A. Tovey Esqr. B.A. | Moorhurst | Parkstone | Dorset'. He thanks him for his letter and photographs, a set of which he would like sent to his mother. 'Yes, of course, I will sign withe [sic] the greatest pleasure the photographs you took of me. Please send it to me together with the birthday book.' He thanks him for his 'kindness to us during our pleasend [sic] stay at Seaford', and hopes to see him the following year. In a postscript he supplies an address in Germany where he will be staying. TWO: 2pp., 12mo. Bifolium. In envelope addressed by the prince to Tovey at 'Bletchington Place | Seaford. | Sussex', He is sending 'the stamps you were longing for', and hopes Tovey has 'given up the idea of attacking me like a highwayman'. He is sending a photograph he made 'the last day you were in Seaford during the summer. I havent played cricket anymore, but a lot of tennis. The weather here is very cold.' He asks to be remembered to 'Mr & Mrs Morton Clark, Miss Godchild and Mrs Arthur Clark and to the boys. I, unfortunately, havent got much more to tell you, as I have begun to work hard again.' With the letter are the following enclosures: two small black and white photographs, the first, docketted on reverse 'Seaford 24th. of July | 1906', showing a group of boys (presumably including the prince) on the lawn in front of the house; the second shows a man (Tovey?) working at a desk; and an envelope (carrying a Greek inscription in pencil) containing fourteen Greek postage stamps, one with postmark.
