The Pages of the Letter

April 24, 1897

My dear Jinnie,

Many thanks for your dear letter. I have been very busy these last few days. I am sorry to hear that you are not well again. I hope that it was not my fault.

I am glad you liked the rabbits; they are the first of this year. Two of them were half grown.

We come to London on the 5th.

Our Cook and all the kitchen maids are leaving. She gave her notice in and they followed suit. The Major has been at me about it, but I am very awful what I say; do you blame me? He made out they would have given her more money if she has asked, but I said nothing about that to her.

Fondest love, from your own loving Bob.

Am glad you enjoyed the Theatre.
