My darling Mama
Your sweet letter has just come, & oh! weren't we very glad to get it, but as it was written to May & me, we don't quite know who had better keep it.
We all want you to come home quickly because it is so sad without you & Papa.
This morning Mrs James & Georgie came to fetch us to go out fishing with them. We enjoyed it very much. Gerald & Georgie thought it lovely. We had the fish for tea, most of them were codlings.
Your box came today & I sent it off as soon as possible.
