I just finished your mother's book and loved it. It was so interesting to read about her as a young girl & what the times were like back then. The photos were beautiful and I loved the one you chose for the front cover of the book What a shame & truly unethical behavior Mr. Joe Cooper showed towards your dear mother. I think it's wonderful that you still have the original camera of your mother's -- I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed Reflections on the Cottingley Fairies. Thank you for signing it & especially for making sure that your mother's story is heard. "
Best Wishes, R
I am currently doing a little research on Frances Griffiths' fairy photographs for a lecture I am giving. I am looking at the photographs as works of art. I enjoyed your book. It has been such a help to my research and is very well put together. "
Thanks very much. The books are for my daughters who grew up watching the film and have just re watched it age 15 and 17 so I thought it would be lovely to have your Mum's book."
I saw the book on Amazon, but felt strongly to order it directly from you Ever since I saw the movie for the first time recently on you tube, I've been totally intrigued.
Then I read several articles and ordered three books: Conan Doyle's, and one that seemed to be in favor and one against (saying hoax). The latter was the recent one Frances and Elsie Fool the World. It was on reading that one that I discovered your wonderful mother had written an autobiography, so I ordered it to get the story from the source. So don't think of that book as a competitor, it brought me to you."

Yes, I'm definitely interested in purchasing a Fairy Bower poster. That's one of the most amazing photos I've ever seen I am so glad the photo was taken on a glass plate. They had so much better resolution (to see the hand) and they last longer than film. So even the technology was right for it"
I saw the book advertised on your website, the Cottingley Reflections. It's a story that has captivated me since before I saw the film, as a child. I've always wanted to believe in such spirits, probably as an explanation of my love of nature and natural history, and I think it's connected to the idea that people aren't interested in that kind of thing much anymore.
Last week I visited the beck itself. I was pleased that it's quiet and peaceful and secretive, without all the usual tourist signs. I took a rock back, which I'll always keep. Perhaps it was there when the fairies where photographed! "
