Mrs Margaret Walmsley
It was lovely to speak with you on the phone today. As discussed the Hawke’s Bay Museum and Art Gallery would like to accept as a gift the Wilcox and Gibbs portable sewing machine with case and key, that was loaned in I965 by Mrs HP Horne into the Hawke’s Bay Museum Trust collection.
Enclosed are two gift certificates. Please sign both certificates where indicated and return both copies to me in the enclosed self-addressed envelope. Once signed, a copy will be returned for your records.
When accepting objects into the collection we aim to record as much as we can about the items history, including its provenance; origins; personal connections and uses (including imagery). Please ﬁnd I have included an image and the current history we have on the sewing machine. If you have any further information on the sewing machine or its previous owners, I would appreciate it if you could include it when returning the gift certificates. Should you have any queries or concerns please contact me on 06 835 7781 ext 718 or e-mail [email protected]
Once again thank you for your donation to the Hawke’s Bay Museum Trust collection.
