Here. Recently found a pencil sketch of CF Goldie painting

Customer Question

Hi John here. Recently found a pencil sketch of CF Goldie painting "Sleep: 'Tis a gentle thing". It is marked "To Else from Charlie" and dated 1931. How would I go about seeing if it is genuine?
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.
Customer: Not a lot. Found it in a garage I am cleanong out. It is framed (amateur). Is drawn on good quality paper. Has signature C F Goldie by inscription and the name "Pokai" in top left corner.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: Therre is a clipping of Dunbar Sloane advert taped to glass. Ad appears to be for sale of original painting which it has dated as 1933
