4Thankyou, dear, much for your letter. You didn’t give me Mrs
address or I would write to her. I shall be so glad to
6meet her. But I shall not be back in London for some time. I am so
7well here. It is so nice being with dear May. So home like. The gorse
8is coming out now & the common looks so pretty. It reminds me of the
9velt about your house. They showed me a lovely likeness of you &
10?Lucky & Carol when they were quite small.
12^Good Bye Olive^
