P.S. As probably Grandpa will want all his money this year for the new ground &c. & will not go to Switzerland with Ma & me, I do not think we shall go, but Ma can go with you, & we will go in June to North Devon for a week or so. Barnstaple seems a good central position with rail to Ilfracombe & to Bideford for Westward Hoe &c. and near [] to Braunton Burrows celebrated for rare plants. Ask Mrs. Fisher if she knows Barnstaple, & what she thinks of it.
In haste | Your affectionate Pa | A.R.W. [signature]
