Rare autograph note signed by and in the hand of Rudyard Kipling. 12mo, one page on Kipling’s Bateman’s house letterhead, the note reads in full, “Sep. 2, 1917 Dear Dr. Curtiss, Would you please come down to Bateman’s as soon as may be to see Mrs. Kipling who is suffering from a sudden attack of illness that I cannot make out the nature of. Very sincerely, Rudyard Kipling.” A 17th-century house located in Burwash, East Sussex, Bateman’s was the home of Rudyard Kipling from 1902 until his death in 1936. Kipling wrote some of his finest works at the house including: “If—”, “The Glory of the Garden”, and Puck of Pook’s Hill, named after the hill visible from the house. In near fine condition. Double matted and framed with a portrait of Kipling. The entire piece measures 14 inches by 11 inches.

English journalist, short-story writer, poet, and novelist Rudyard Kipling's major works include The Jungle Book (1894), Kim (1901) and many short stories and poems. Kipling was born in India, which inspired much of his work and his innovative stories for children have become timeless classics. Kipling was one of the most popular writers in the British Empire, in both prose and verse, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature in 1907.
