1 Thankyou, would have liked so much to go, but went out early this
2morning to my favourite place among the fir trees, only got back at 1
3to find your card too late! I hope the music was nice. I went once, &
4enjoyed it intensely.

6 //I hope your cousin didn't take the cold the other night. She looked
7as if she were feling it, & I might have got her a cloak. You have to
8take care when you first come to the Riviera of the evening chill.
9Your flowers are still lovely.
