Letters from Lucy Penny

Fifty-nine letters and seven postcards, 1944-1946, 1949, [?1950], 1951-1955, to Phyllis Playter from John Cowper Powys's sister, Lucy Penny. The letters contain mainly family news, including references to the deaths of Lucy's sister, Gertrude Powys, and her brother, Theodore Francis Powys, and to Lucy Penny's stay at Allington Sanatorium, Bridport, Dorset from 1952 to1953. Enclosed with one letter is a letter from Lucy to her brother, John Cowper Powys. There are occasional notes by Powys biographer Morine Krissdottir.
