Letter from J M Barrie to Mrs Lewis

I hope you will all have a very happy New Year ... Here I am all alone as M. and N. are in bed and I've come back to the flat for tonight. Christmas evening was even gayer as I had to come in to town and Brown and his wife were away, so I had to make my own fire and dinner (eggs) and bed. The fire was worst, as there were no sticks, but I found a straw basket Mrs Brown goes to market with -- or rather went, for it will accompany her no more. Otherwise I have been at Campden Hill and tomorrow am taking Michael and Nicholas for a week to the sea. Peter is probably on the Channel at this moment taking a draft of France. Jack in the country.
