11 Thank you my darling sister for all your loving care & goodness to me.
12I am sure that I feel so wonderfully better is largely owing to it. I
13shall never forget all your kindness. I listened at your door to hear
14if you & Will were awake before I left, but I like to wake you. It’s
15been raining heavily here, but it’s fine now & I’ve been showing
16Cron my old haunts. We go on first thing on Monday morning & get home
17on Tuesday. My love to the dear little ones all & Alice. Thank Will
18for his wire.
