Edmund Harding to Mrs. Inglis Fletcher, 28 October 1955

Relationships that began to develop during the Bath 250th anniversary celebration remained important after the events. Edmund H. Harding would continue to call on Inglis Fletcher to help as plans to restore historic buildings in Bath grew following the celebrations.

Mrs. John Fletcher
Bandon Plantation
Edenton, North Carolina

Dear Mrs. Fletcher:

I was sorry you and John were not at the Masonic meeting in Edenton the other night. I missed you.

The name of the costumer who furnished our costumes is Van Horn & Son, Costumer, Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, Pa.

Again we thank you for helping make our pageant a success and I got a big kick out of Bill Sharpe's article about you saying "What the bell needs is a Bath".

I was interested in the picture of Bandon that you sent. I suppose the reason the blind was not open over the porch was that John was taking a nap.
