1 My darling Mary,

3 I think it would be better as you are going to Scotland & Paris is
4still so close to put off our going till September. Oh it will be so
5beautiful to have you dear. My heart hungers for you. I seem to want
6no other humanbeing as I want you just now. I might tell you more of
7my affairs if I could write ^talk^ but I can't write.

9 I wish I had seen the children. If you pass through York, try & stop &
10see the Cathedral. I shall be in London at the end of the month, &
11shall go to spend August at St Leonards, I think.

13 Are you happy dear?

15 Your Olive
