Scope and Contents

Transcription: [Crown] MARLBOROUGH HOUSE S.W.1. Dear Mrs. Pratt I am commanded by Queen Mary to convey to you Her Majesty’s grateful thanks for the travelling clock which was a gift from Queen Victoria to Princess Alix. The Queen very much interested to have it and touched that you should have given it to Her. The Clock will be put among family relics. You will have read of the terrible motor accident Her Majesty has been in. I am thankful to say she is getting over the effects wonderfully well, it is amazing that the Queen was not seriously injured and indeed that no one was badly hurt. Yrs sincerely Constance [?] Gaskell May 27 39
