GREENAWAY, Catherine (Kate) (1846-1901). Artist & creator of childrens' books.
Autograph Letter Signed to an unnamed correspondent ('Dear Sir'), 2 pages 8vo, 11 Pemberton Gardens, Holloway, 12 September 1883. Probably to Norman Shaw, the architect who was to design her new home at 39 Frognal in Hampstead. Promising to call on him and to discuss plans.
'I am so very pleased. I only hope you will not find it too small for you to care about doing it - or my requirements too tiresome.
 'I will call if I may on Saturday afternoon between half past 3 and 4. My brother will come with me. He has made some rough plans, for me, for the arrangements of the rooms - which I should be very glad if it were somewhat possible to keep to ... I felt so extremely diffident in asking you to do it. ...'
