5 Dear Boy
7 I shall meet you at Waterloo. Its too fine to think you are coming.
9 Ol is here today packing his things He says he & Ursie will come down
10to Waterloo too if they can.
12 I’ve found a nice little hotel very quiet at Ly Linden Gardens ^just
13close to Kensington Gardens & Palace^ at which Ursie has been staying
14Ol suggest you might like it. I’ll go & look if they have a
15comfortable room the day before you come – not taking it as you may
16have other plans – but just in case you’d like to try it. The air
17is so much better here.
19 I do hope you’ve had a good time & really rested. I am flourishing
20as a green bay tree. You wouldn’t know me from what I was when I
21arrived from Florence.
23 Good bye dear.
24 Ol
