Letter from Harry Llewelyn Davies to his brother Arthur on his engagement to Sylvia, 27 March 1890
104, W. Princes Street [?Edinburgh?]
Thursday [27th March 1890]
My dear Arthur,
I cannot tell you how glad I was to hear the news this evening (for which a letter from Mother had somewhat prepared me), and how truly and deeply if I feel with you in your new great happiness.
The news came so suddenly and unexpectedly but I was very glad to get your note this evening, which helped me to realise things better. Many thanks for writing.
You will, I'm sure, know how warmly we shall welcome her into our midst, and I believe that she will soon win and fill a much cherished place in our home circle.
I have been thinking of you much today, and rejoicing most heartily for you - but of course I am most anxious for further news. I am very glad now that I can get a day or two at K.L. at Easter.
It will indeed be a pleasure to see you both, and I'm sure it will be a very delightful time for us all. I will not write any more now - and know you will take all this for granted, and I shall greatly look forward to soon bringing you my warm congratulations in the flesh.
Of course, don't trouble to write unless you feel inclined, but news of you would be very acceptable.
Ever, dear Arthur, your must affec. brother,
