This entry contains 2 image(s).


Letter from Jack (aged 6) to Mary Hodgson, 7 April 1901, written from Freshwater Bay in the Isle of Wight.

[Not in Peter's Morgue]


Easter Sunday 17 [April] 1901

My dear Mary,
We did like the journey. We could not get the first train. There are lovely downs. There is a fort on one of them. We saw a beacon of Tennyson too. It was lovely on the steamer. We climbed about the rocks while Mother sat in the cove. I wish you where here, do you think you could come with Micky.

[AB: I seem to remember Nico found this letter, or possibly Gerrie ... at any rate it was not included in Peter's Morgue, and is a nice companion to Sylvia's letter to Mary Hodgson. Micky must have been an early nick-name for Michael.]
