  1. The other day a visitor to or home,semi-detached 3 bedroom, remarked upon a tapestry hanging on the wall, I explained how I came to own it, they were very
    Interested, but clearly found he story difficult to believe. The forgoing prompted me to look on the Internet where I learnt of the death of your father.
    To cut a long story short, and if you are trying to trace examples of your fathers work, the tapestry titled Fish,which was at Sheffield, (but not displayed ) for the exhibition of your Fathers tapestries, is in the possession of my Wife and I.I would be glad to send you a photograph of same, plus photocopies of letters from your father.
