    Hi, I recently purchased some items from a charity shop in Deal and amongst them found an original letter in it’s original envelope to a Mrs Raikes from Katharine Calderon. In it there are references to ‘Percy’,(on doing some research, I believe to be Percy Lubbock) and George. There is also a reference to Earlham. If you are interested in the letter, please send me an email. I really enjoyed researching the letter and finding out all about the life of George and Katharine.

    • Katy, this is SENSATIONAL! It would have been worth running the blog for the last eight months just for this, and I’m so glad you found us when you were researching Katharine (Kittie, as we call her)! Letters from Kittie are very rare, because all her letters to her best friend Nina Corbet were burned bar one, she herself destroyed all her letters to George (why???) bar one, and her voluminous letters to Percy Lubbock seem to have been lost in WWII. It’s utterly amazing: a new letter of Kittie’s has not come to light for, I think, four years! I really cannot thank you enough or admire your proactivity enough in tracking us Calderonians down. Mrs Gladys Raikes was a friend of the Pyms at Foxwold (to find out all about Foxwold, where the Calderons spent Christmas 1914, tap it into the search box on the blog), and possibly also of Nina Corbet-Astley’s, as the address on the envelope that you have sent me a scan of is near where Nina lived. Gladys Raikes’s address at Ashwell, near Baldock, is in both of Kittie’s address books (i.e. 1895-1942 and 1942-50). She may have been born in 1877, making her ten years younger than Kittie. Her husband, Arthur Whittington Raikes, died in 1921. Her son was a hero of the defence of Calais in 1940. I see from the Web that she also designed a garden at Yalding in Kent, so perhaps that is how this letter came to be in your part of the world. Designing gardens would be another thing she had in common with Kittie. The scans of the letter itself also show that it is INVALUABLE to this biographer, because it confirms that William Rothenstein gave a talk about George, probably in Oxford, in 1923, and because in the letter Kittie compares Percy Lubbock’s ‘Life’ of George (in other words she regarded Percy’s ‘Sketch from Memory’ as George’s first biography!) with Percy’s second book, ‘Earlham’. Ab-so-lut-ely fascinating and so fantastic a discovery by you that I must post about it next week when the War allows me to. Meanwhile, though, I can’t tell you how grateful I am to you. It seems almost uncanny that your full name, I gather from your emails, is not just KATHARINE, but GEORGE! Patrick
