1p., 4to. In good condition, on lightly-aged paper. Ornate letterhead printed in red and black, with engraving of a rising sun ('The Mark of Excellence'). Addressed to 'Messrs. Marcus Adams Ltd. | Child Photographers, | 43, Dover Street, | W.1.' The letter begins: 'I have in hand the production of a film somewhat of a national character, including all the episodes in the reigns of our Royal Family, from Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee onwards, and I thought it would be a very nice idea to finish the film with a short length of little Princess Elizabeth. | I am sorry to say that the Duke and Duchess of York think that the Princess is too young to be filmed yet, but they are quite willing for me to reproduce the Princess from a still photograph, stating that you have the latest copies of the single photographs of Princess Elizabeth, and they have given me the rights to reproduce this in a short length of film.' He asks for 'one or two photographs of the little Princess' to be submitted, with a bill, adding that 'B. W. Brooke, Esq., The Comptroller of the Duke of York's household asked me to state that I have his authority to obtain this photograph from you.' From the Adams family papers.
