Although in the Gilded Age section there is a thread about Helen Churchill Candee which this mail is related to, I thought it more appropriate to post here:

I have a letter by Helen Churchill Candee to the same Mrs Cooper that the "New Journeys to Old Asia" is inscribed to, written on 30th May 1912. In it, she says that she has had "no way to obtain things for herself, as shopping is out of the question with crutches".

Do you have any idea if this might have been due to her being injured in the Titanic disaster?

All my best,

Kalman Tanito
