417 High R[oa]d

Chiswick W.

Oct[ober] 24th 1903

Dear Walter,

I heard from my mother yesterday morning and as I expected she wished me to reply on her behalf. She would have replied written to yourself you herself to thank you for the very beautiful letter you sent her along with the copy of the resolution, but her heart is still too full. Your affectionate regard for my father she will never forget neither will your shall I.

[[2]] With kindest regards yours ever gratefully & sincerely | Ernest F. Bates [signature]
