Enclosed with this letter is part of another letter regarding a visit to Llandrindod written by Georgina Brackenbury, as follows:


I am so glad you were not at all rejoicing over my empty chair. I am such a horridly critical person and, still I found everything to admire & nothing to criticise in that sweet restful household. They all thought me looking much better and I feel so – You will find tea awaiting you when you come on Tuesday – You will arrive here about 4 oclock as I did. I hope you will feel better for the change of atmosphere. Although you can never be so happy as in that little household.

My love to “May” and best regards to Dr Parker and some strokes to Olly.
Affectionately Yours,
Georgina A. Brackenbury
