Letter from Emma du Maurier to her daughter May [Coles], 6 January 1913


16 Royal Crescent
January 6, 1913

My darling May,
[…] George left this morning as Mrs Anthony Hope is taking him to a theatre tonight. I am not sure that I like George to see much of her.
It is a perfect morning and I now quite look forward to my bath chair ride.
The boys and girls are great friends and I hope it will last. Michael and Nico were immensely tickled because Angela and Daphne kissed Peter and George when they arrived.
I miss my quiet time and siesta that I had when you were here. The children instead of being torpid after lunch are livelier than ever and the maids are so long over their dinner and don’t get out early enough. However it doesn’t matter for such a short time. [...]
Hicks has given me strychnine now and says the less I walk the better so I shall obey him here.
Your loving Mother.
