I think the war is turning to victory, but there will be much suffering yet.

POTTER, Beatrix (HEELIS, H. B.) Autograph Letter Signed

1941.

A lengthy two page letter, signed H.B. Heelis, written to Charles Forrester, a Carlisle cattle farmer. With original envelope. The first page is written on the back of a letter from Mr Forrester to Mrs Heelis in 1938 enclosing the pedigree of a bull she bought from him. On that side she has written, "I cannot find the pedigree referred to in this letter, I think the bull was bred by Mr Mitchenson...". In the main letter, she enquires about buying a young Galloway bull, having recently parted with one, "a fine beast and so quiet", and how it is difficult getting a Galloway stirk registered "as the inspectors know little about the breed, and call the stirks undersized". She them moves on to talk of the war, "Sad times - I think the war is turning to victory, but there will be much suffering yet. We can see the sky lighted up over the Lancashire towns." She talks of sheep farming "Lamb sales very disappointing" but "did very well the Hindwick wool". She talks also about pigs and the use of silage "We find it invaluable. So people who have bought cheap wire silos are having some waste if they did not thatch, + got rain water in". She finishes by hoping to hear that all is well at Skitby (Forrester's farm).
