Doris Holmes Blake - Correspondence with Arthur Lake Holmes and Lucy Wentworth Holmes, undated (Folder 2 of 4)
About the Project
The prolific nature of the correspondence between Doris and her parents is perhaps most charmingly evident in the varied assortment of writing substrates in use in their letters. Doris's mother, Lucy, seems particularly prone to using whatever came to hand at the time to dash off a note or letter to her daughter—postcards, scraps of bulk mail, a wide variety of stationery—and reveals deeper insight into Lucy as a person.
