Signed Autograph Note on a postcard mailed to author George Somes Layard in 1904
Autograph Note signed: "Tennyson", 4½x3½ postcard. Addressed in his hand to "G. Layard Esq./Felixtowe". In full: "I regret to say that I have no letters from Miss Greenaway upon which I can put my hand for you." Undated, but postmarked October 11, 1904.Hallam Tennyson (1852-1928), the eldest son of Victorian England's most beloved poet, Alfred Tennyson, became the second Baron Tennyson upon his father's death in 1892. Hallam wrote a biography of his father in 1897. In 1899, Tennyson was appointed Governor of South Australia; he ascended to Governor-General of Australia in 1902. Despite his lack of political experience, he proved a popular Governor-General. This letter was evidently written to author George Somes Layard (1852-1925), who had written an 1895 book about Alfred Tennyson and would be publishing a book in 1905 about Kate Greenaway (1846-1901), a celebrated English book illustrator. Soiled. Horizontal crease at lower margin.
