Scope and content

Autograph draft by Helen Thomas, [early 1920s], of a possibly unpublished lyrical work about her love of nature in general and of hills and mountains in particular.

There are also references to the Sussex Downs (f. 45 recto-verso) and to her 1919 visit to Scotland (ff. 46-49 verso) and to Glen [?Ample, Perthshire] (f. 49) (see Helen Thomas, Time & Again, ed. by Myfanwy Thomas (Manchester, 1978), pp. 126-127).
