Letter from Charles Crompton to his nephew Arthur, 31 March 1890
13, C.P. [Cromwell Place]
31 March 1890 - Monday.
I must send you one line to accompany you on your way to Kirby Lonsdale and to welcome you when you get there. I did not get an opportunity of telling you how much I like your Sylvia, and how glad I am to think you will have such a woman to your life. I wish I was going to be Kirkby Lonsdale to see the welcome she will receive from all there. A daughter-in-law for Mary and a sister-in-law for Margaret is the Roc's Egg that was wanted in that happiest of families.
I had a nice talk with Mr du Maurier at the street door about you, and I liked what he said about you, and the happiness he felt in giving his daughter to a man like you.
All kinds of messages and best wishes to Sylvia,
Ever your affte. uncle, C.C.
"Halcyon days" as your mother used to say.
