(2) Christmas card inscribed by Wallis: ''Let me know when the kennel is open we must have a Smudge Pot [one of the puppies] / Merry Christmas / Happy New Year / to you both and the glam Ms Smudge Pot / The Duke and Duchess of Windsor''. (3-7) Collection of unsigned letters from the Royal Couple, most regarding the pugs and even agreeing to a ''marriage'' between their pug and one owned by the Feuerhans. (8-9) Two books regarding the life of Wallis Simpson, ''The Heart Has Its Reasons'' and ''Her Name Was Wallis Warfield''. (10) Newspaper clippings related to the Royal Couple's dogs.
