A lengthy Typed Letter Signed ‘Margaret’, to Miss Milner, describing her life in the countryside at Helsingborg, and her war work among prisoners. 2 pp. 8 x 7 inches, light toning, in good condition, horizontal fold. Embossed M and coronet. Sophiero, Helsingborg, 24 July 1918. Princess Margaret of Connaught (1882 –1920) was Crown Princess of Sweden as the first wife of the future King Gustaf VI Adolf. She was the elder daughter of Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught, third son of Queen Victoria, and his wife Princess Louise Margaret of Prussia. “The flowers are indeed a joy for ever & at this moment we have a long long row of Madonna lilies which as some said yesterday are like a row of Angels with white wings keeping guard over the children… I go on doing my little bit of war work by helping the prisoners best I can & trying to find those who are missing, often a sad task but when I do succeed in discovering some officer the joy is very great.”
