|Jere Coddington||Xie Kitchin|
Thank you, sir, for the page on Xie Kitchin, in Putney Vale Cemetery, and the two photographs of her. I have collected Carroll's pictures of Xie for over a decade, but had never seen the one you uploaded.
I admire her very much, as she was the only one of Carroll's models that didn't try to exploit the relationship for attention in later life. And, in any of the photographs one can see Carroll said (after being asked how to make a perfect photograph) "Use any kind of lens, but have Xie Kitchin in front of it." Some say this statement is a myth, but having seen her beauty, I truly believe he felt that way.
Thanks again for making her beauty available to us, and for showing us the peaceful and beautiful place where her remains are safe.
