4 Dear Miss Sharpe

6 Your letter was a pleasure to me, & more than that, a help. I quite
7understood it. I will not answer it now, because I would like to
8answer it at length. I am glad to have good news of the tiny girl at
9Harrow. I should like to have her a whole day ^quite^ to myself.

11 Yours always faithfully
