Sharp, Rosamund to H.G. [Wells?], Sept. 3rd
Sharp, Rosamund to Doris Langley Moore, Sunday July 26th
"Dear Mrs Moore I'm afraid I was a little [?] in my calculations about the Depford plays. Cinderella was in '92 and that was the first actual play. Before lent there were tableaux and things of that sort..."
Sharp, Rosamund, to Doris Langley Moore, July 23rd
"Dear Mrs Moore I think that the approximately [?] years of the plays at Deptford were from 1894 - 1897. I should say that "Cinderella" was in '94. Sleeping Beauty '95 and Aladdin '96. I'm not absolutely certain of this but there certainly is no question of it being after 1900 because we went to Well Hall then and there affairs were all while we were at Three Gables at Grove Park. Also I'm sure I wasn't more than seven or eight when I was Fairy Godmother in Cinderella..."
Sharp, Rosamund to Doris Langley Moore, June 22
"Just had your letter forwarded to me here. I'm answering in a hurry as I know you want to hear at once. But I can't help you about either point, I'm afraid. I never heard of this play being [taken?], and do not understand to what it can refer..."
Sharp, Rosamund to Doris Langley Moore, June 16

Sharp, Rosamund to Doris Langley Moore, May 22nd
"Dear Mrs Langley Moore I am afraid I very folishly did not take into account the fact that Monday was Whit-Monday when I accepted your invitation to lunch. I wonder if you realised it yourself. I am going away for a day or two and do not want to come back early enough to get me up to Town by lunch..."
Sharp, Rosamund to Doris Langley Moore, April 15th
"Dear Madam In reply to your letter concerning a biography of my mother "E. Nesbit", I shall be glad to see you and help you if I can but I think there are people who can be of far more use than I in this respect, and probably I could put you on them. Unfortunately it is rather difficult for me to come and see you just this week or two but if you will be in Town still I should be glad if you could come here..."
Sharp, Rosamund to Mrs. H.G. Wells, 1908-03-04
"Dear Mrs Wells Of course you have an invitation to the [Nursery?] lectures. I wouldn't think of sending you a ticket. It never occurred to me to write to you because I thought you would understand that you were to come if you wanted to. I'm so sorry you aren't coming to our dance on the 20th..."
