15, Bayswater Terrace.
April 15th [1890]

Dearest Mrs Davies,
I feel I must just write a few lines to you, to thank you with all my heart for being so very kind and sweet to me.
The journey to Kirby was rather painful, but the sweetness at the end of it, and the dear ones waiting to meet me, was worth going through much, much more for.
The recollection of my first visit to Kirby will be very dear to me, and I shall never be able to thank you enough. I am very, very fond of you. I was, I think, the moment I saw you.
I had a letter from Arthur this morning, and I'm going to write to him now.
It was dreadful saying goodbye to him at Preston.
Good bye, with fond love to you all, and hoping Margaret is better.
Always affectionately yours,
Sylvia du Maurier
PS I shall send you our Pall Mall - we have always done it by 8 o'c
Peter's comment:

This simple and perfect little letter, the earliest of the few of Sylvia's which I have, requires no annotating.
