Both items in good condition, on lightly-aged paper. ONE. Autograph note. 1p., 12mo. In envelope with stamp and postmark, addressed by Campbell to 'Lawrence W. Hodson Esq | Compton Hall. | near Wolverhampton'. The note reads: 'Dear Mr. Hodson. | I shall be very happy to see you on Thursday at 4 o'c. I consider it most kind of you to consider the matter at all. | Yours very truly | B S Campbell'. TWO. Secretarial letter or copy. 2pp., 12mo. Bifolium. In a neat close hand, with what purports to be the signature of 'Beatrice Stella Campbell', but is not. Whether a transcript or secretarial copy, the letter has Campbell exhorting Wallis to 'Please, please beg & implore your friend to look upon the matter as Sir Edward would have looked upon it. Sir Edward gave me the picture, it is mine, indeed it is, whoever has it.' She explains that she would prefer not to offer more for it than Hodson paid, 'because then I would feel that I had bargained for what was my own & it would take away the preciousness of Sir Edwards gift. | Tell Mr. Hodson I will do anything for him in return. I will sing for him! or dance for him! - or act for him, or pray for him, or sit 100 times to an artist for my picture to be painted for him!!! -' Word cannot convey 'what pain has been given through the selling of that picture' or her gratitude if Hodson would let her have it. 'The Knopff is another matter I'll bargain for that! or I should like to hear if there is any chance of my getting it.' She concludes by giving her London address, and enquiring if Hodson would see her there. Mrs Campbell had been romantically linked with Burne-Jones's son Philip. Hodson was a wealthy brewer, connoisseur of Pre-Raphaelite painting and patron of the Arts and Crafts movement. N° de ref. de la librería 13773
