Scarce personal letter to her stepmother

ALS signed “Audrey,” three pages, 5.75 x 8.25, personal letterhead, May 12, 1983. Letter to her stepmother, Fidelma Hepburn-Ruston. In full: “Thank you for your sweet telegram and for remembering my birthday. With me all is well the boys fine, thank God. Mummy the same and a great worry. Now her 86 year old sister who also lives in Switzerland is not well either so I have my work cut out caring for my oldies as I am all they have. I long for the holidays as I am very tired. Hope you are well and have been able to find a solution to your worries. Love to Muriel, and to you with a big kiss.” Attractively double-matted and framed with a portrait of Hepburn to an overall size of 19.25 x 24.5. In fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope, addressed in Hepburn’s hand. Audrey Hepburn and her mother were abandoned in Holland by her father during the Nazi occupation in World War II. Later in life, she learned through the Red Cross that her father was still alive and was reunited with him and met his young wife, Fidelma. She supported them financially and maintained correspondence with her stepmother, even after her father passed away in 1980. A beautifully penned letter in which Hepburn’s warmhearted kindness is evident. Oversized. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
