TLS signed “Elizabeth,” one page, 4.75 x 7.5, Buckingham Palace letterhead, November 27, 1948. Letter to Mrs. Fisher, in full: "Thank you so much for your letter. We were delighted to receive your message of congratulations and good wishes." The queen proceeds to add a lengthy handwritten addition to the letter: "The baby is very sweet and we are enormously proud of him. I find it hard to believe that he is really mine, and each time I see him, I have to convince myself that he is true. Perhaps that happens to all mothers for the first time. It is wonderful to think the baby has brought happiness to so many people, besides ourselves, at this time. Once again, thank you for your letter." The queen also adds the salutation in her own hand. In fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope. Charles, Prince of Wales was born on November 14, 1948, less than two weeks before this letter was written.
