“The Tale of Mr. Jeremy Fisher” was adapted from a children's book, written and illustrated by Beatrix Potter. It was originally published in July 1906. Jeremy's origin lies in a letter she wrote to a child in 1893. She revised it in 1906 and moved its setting from the River Tay to the English Lake District. The tale reflects her love for the Lake District.
Potter's tale pays homage to the leisurely summers her father and his companions spent sport fishing at rented country estates in Scotland. Following the tale's publication, a child fan wrote to Potter suggesting Jeremy find a wife. Potter responded with a series of miniature letters on the theme as if from Jeremy.
