My Dear Miss Potter,
Thank you for all the joy you have brought through the years to us, our children, and children's children.
Thank you for all your "little bunny books" with their wit, wisdom, charm and beauty.
Thank you for your genius, for carrying on when the world doubted you, for making your mark, not just in art but in science.
Thank you for thinking ahead, for sharing your wealth and saving the beautiful countryside which you loved and so preserving it for the coming generations.
What a legacy you bequeathed us.
All our lives are richer because of you, dear lady.
