Laid in: illustrated signed handwritten note with drawing, original pencil sketch, and clippings. ** (1) Undated handwritten ink note from Paul Brown, to an unknown recipient, on the letterhead of the Queen Hotel, Chester [England]. Probably 1930s. On one side Brown has drawn in ink a horse clearing a brush jump, below which he has written, "'Having great time with you were here.' (can truthfully write the above) Paul (over)". On the other side is the note, remarking on people he'd seen in England (Mr. and Mrs. Fred Bontecou, Jim Ryan, Alonzo Potter, and "Bobby" Young) and giving his impressions of the Grand National course. "Bobby" Young "was ready to vote the Maryland Cup just about as hard. So say we all of us." (2) Rough pencil sketch of two jumpers, titled "Hurdles". Onionskin, ca. 14 x 16 inches.
