Dear Rachel,

Even though Sarah Elizabeth passed away so tragically and so young, she still lives on because her story is still being told. The bonnet is so vivacious and bright and all the more beautiful for having survived so long to bring smiles once again to the faces of all who behold it. Thank you for continuing to share these pieces of history with the world.

Warmest regards from a very chilly London,
Lyze Lynch

Is there anywhere we can find out more about this time capsule, please? The bonnet is absolutely amazing and I am so intrigued to know more about the context in which it was found and the other items preserved with it. All the best, Daniel

Hi Daniel,

It is fascinating a glimpse into the past, isn't it? All the other objects found with the bonnet, which included garment and accessories worn by Sarah and her mother, reside in two private collections. We were not party to the original discovery of these objects, so we don't have any more information than what is published here. Grouped together, these objects would make a fascinating topic for a small exhibition or publication.
