Ryrie-Campbell Collection: Special Items

The Ryrie-Campbell Special Items collection is an assemblage of nearly 30 printed items documenting various aspects of L.M. Montgomery's life and career, from the late 1890s through the 1930s. Highlights include:
  • a 1907 postcard sent to Montgomery by Reverend Ewen (Ewan) Macdonald from Scotland, during the years of their secret engagement;
  • a rare early printing of Montgomery's "Island Hymn";
  • a hand-written manuscript by Montgomery recounting her 1924 visit to Mammoth Cave, Kentucky;
  • PEI postcards from Montgomery to her former newspaper co-worker, Miss Edith Russell, of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia;
  • notes and letters sent by Montgomery to fans in the United States and Australia, and;
  • several books inscribed by Montgomery to her cousin and close-friend Beatrice Alberta ("Bertie") McIntyre.
These items, assembled through many years of skilful devotion on the part donor Donna Jane Campbell -- and richly contextualized by the knowledge and research of Campbell and other Montgomery scholars and collectors -- provide unique and significant insights into Montgomery and her legacy.

Montgomery's note likely references a postcard received from MacMillan: other notes on her postcards to MacMillan reference well-known Scottish sites shown on postcards he sent to her. The best-known "Seven Sisters" site in the British Isles is a series of chalk cliffs overlooking the English Channel at the edge of the South Downs in East Sussex, England, but it is unclear if this is the location Montgomery is referring to here.

Printed message on front reads: "Your ship is coming in / A staunch, seaworthy craft / I've chartered it to send you / A full cargo fore and aft. / Every barrel, box and bale / Captain, mate and all the crew / Each is laden with good wishes / And they're all consigned to you." Cavendish postmark is incomplete, but can be inferred with some confidence as "March 22, 1910"; unusually, there is a faint Halifax postmark on the front of the card that appears to be dated, "March 24, 1910". The clearest postmark is for Alloa, dated "April 2, 1910". For further information about this item, refer to: Cavert, Mary Beth (2020). "L.M.

The quote is likely an allusion to Robert Browning's poem, "How They Brought the Good News from Ghent to Aix" (1845); the poem is famous for its rapid, 'galloping horse" meter, and it is possible that Punch -- or some other popular British periodical -- ran some sort of spoof of it for the motor car era.

The book that is being referenced here is likely "Anne's House of Dreams" (1917) and the books of poems "The Watchman and other poems" (1916). Lieutenant-Colonel Samuel S. Sharpe raised the 116th Battalion (Ontario County), CEF, for European service in World War I. He led the regiment in the Battle of Vimy Ridge in 1917, the Battle of Passchendaele, and an attack at Avion in August 1917. He was re-elected as a Member of Parliament for the Unionist Party while serving in Europe. In early 1918, he was awarded the DSO for his actions during the Battle of Passchendaele. He committed suicide in 1918 while suffering from "shell shock", which was later discovered to be Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. In 2018 his hometown of Uxbridge revealed a statue in his memory, and in 2019 the provincial courthouse in Oshawa was renamed in his honour and a plaque commemorating him was placed in Centre Block on Parliament Hill.

The fact that L.M. Montgomery was being sent 'Bibby's Annual' indicates a possible interest in Theosophy. Date inferred from similar winter reference in 6 February 1928 letter and stamp value.

The quote in the message is from the book-length poem 'Festus', by Philip James Bailey. The most likely reason the card has no stamps or postmarks is because it was enclosed with the "copy of 'Fate' " mentioned in L.M. Montgomery's message. The "naval battle" referred to may be the Battle of Jutland (May-June 1916). Per the Royal Museums Greenwich, this was "the only major fleet battle of the First World War". https://www.rmg.co.uk/discover/behind-the-scenes/blog/naval-battles-first-world-war. Dated by an identical reference to this poem in her letter of 6 February 1928. For further information about this item, refer to: Cavert, Mary Beth (2020). "L.M.

Accompanied by envelope addressed, in L.M. Montgomery's handwriting, to "Mr. George B. MacMillan." George Boyd MacMillan (1881-1953) was a Scottish journalist and writer, and a favourite correspondent of L.M. Montgomery. The two were first introduced, by letter, in 1903, through an American writer who was developing a circle of literary pen friends. Although Montgomery and MacMillan only met briefly in-person, during her 1911 honeymoon in Scotland, their voluminous exchange of letters, postcards, and gifts continued until late 1941, just months before Montgomery's death. Montgomery was asked in 1935 by the Prime Minister at the time, R.B. Bennett, to accept the appointment of the Officer of the Order of the British Empire (O.B.E.) in anticipation of H.M. King George V's Silver Jubilee.

The address in L.M. Montgomery's writing appears to be on a label that has been affixed on top of a previous address that bears the postdate June 22, 1942. Although it is mostly covered, it appears that the previous envelope was addressed to a "...Stewart." Stewart is likely the last name of the original addressee. The postdate on the label with George Boyd MacMillan's address reads August 12 with an indecipherable year. The stamp has been removed.

This poem was also published in Good Housekeeping in January 1936 under the title "I wish you." It was also published in The Blythes are Quoted (2009), under the title, "I wish you." The Blythes are Quoted was intended by Montgomery to be the ninth volume of the Anne series. The poem is situated in Part 1 of the book which includes poems written by Anne and her son, Walter Blythe, before the First World War. Part 1 also includes "The Piper," the poem mentioned in Rilla of Ingleside that was written by Walter Blythe before his death. The manuscript for The Blythes are Quoted was delivered by L.M. Montgomery to her publisher on April 23, 1942, one day before her death.
