Autographed letter signed

No date c 1930

Possibly a copy of a letter which might have been sent as a fair copy. Teresa. Autographed letter signed and undated. 2ff. Letter to a lady client about a window that the firm was to make. Interesting in the insight it gives to costing quoting "five guineas per foot and the height of the window is 11 feet 9 inches by two feet." She requests a deposit of thirty pounds. Unfortunately neither the client nor the window location is evident from this fascinating letter which indicates her involvement in the firm. The window was to be in the style of 13th century and set out in Medallions on the theme of the nativity. Nathaniel Westlake worked in the period 1868-1920. The role of Teresa Westlake [ daughter ] has not hitherto been identified in the firm. The paper on which the letter is written suggests c1930. Some paint colours on verso of letter dabbed on. Clues in the letter suggest this was to be a commission for an American client.
