My dear Annie,
As you are not coming home till Monday I send you Wills’ long letter received yesterday afternoon. I have written to Will this morning. We have been to see Mr Rayne’s Dickson, & to Ardmore, and a walk to Will’s daffodil fields, Broadstone Junction yesterday morning, but I have not felt up to much yet. A Miss Ree called here yesterday & took tea. She is a great friend of Mrs G Davies [] of Godalming, and is thinking of taking or building a house with a friend or relative who is rather delicate. She seems very pleasant. Nobody else has been but Rose went with Mrs Horn yesterday to a kind of bazaar for E. African niggers at "The Elms".
That is all the news.
Yours very affectionately | Alfred [signature]
