Elsa Barker, an inscription

Elsa Barker (1869-1954)

from The Book of Love (1912)

To Algernon Blackwood:
When Florence Purkins 
bought this book of my poems
to be inscribed to you, she
gave me an opportunity
to extend greetings to a fellow
student of QBLH, and to a
very great literary artist.
Yours very sincerely,
Elsa Barker, HASh.
