Letter received from 97 year old Bachite

I’ve just heard from one of the few surviving residents of The Bach, typed on an old school typewriter on onion skin paper. Ferg has gifted me a beautiful, ragged piece of their letterhead, which depicts the crest and motto, in Greek, which in translation reads, “beacuse of poverty”.

I’m attempting to relax it using a damp cotton tea towel sitting in a roasting dish and misting it gently with water.
