Letter from Margaret Llewelyn Davies to Sylvia du Maurier on her engagement to Arthur, 24 (or 25) March 1890 "You will be the first sister I have ever had ..."
24th [or 25th] March, 1890
Dear Miss du Maurier,
I cannot write to Arthur without sending my warm sympathy and gratitude to you, who have brought this great joy into his life. We care for you aready for his sake, and shall soon, I know, for your own.
You will be the first sister I ever had, and I shall be so grateful for your friendship if you will give it to me.
How glad we shall all be, if you will come here with Arthur next week. You need not be afraid, for you will be more than welcome.
Margaret Llewelyn Davies
I put Margaret's letter first because of the date; but it looks very much to me as if in her excitement she got the date wrong, and really wrote on the same day as her mother and Theodore.
