Beatrix Potter letter
Beatrix Potter addresses the letter to a young fan

It dates to 1808 and includes several small illustrations of rabbits and mice.

She writes: "I have been trying dreadfully hard to think about another story about Peter. I thinked and thinked and thinked last year; but I didn't think enough to fill a book!

"So I made a story about Jemima Puddleduck instead - and it will be in the shops very soon. I hope you will like it."
