“You must have made an enormous amount of lavender bags to raise so much money, and I really do feel proud of you. I put the money into my Birthday Fund to buy presents for the children.”
Enid Blyton has signed her name clearly to the bottom of the message and addressed the postcards to the three children in her own hand.
The front of the postcard bears an image from The Six Cousins.
This scarce Enid Blyton’s Magazine Six Cousins postcard is in Good condition with wear to the edges with a minute nick to the top of the postcard (when viewed from the front); an old corner crease to the bottom right corner (when viewed from the front), and a larger old crease to the right portion of the card that has been flattened and is now barely visible.
