The Pages of the Letter

December 5, 1897

Dear Jane,

Please tell Ted to go to Paddington Station. Elliot writes me to say he goes that way 9.50 it arrives here same time as 9.30 from Euston. I have been busy all the day with my books nice thing for Sunday, but should not have time next week. It doesn’t matter a bit which way Ted comes. If he has gone to Euston when you get this, it will take Elliot all his time to find him (won’t it) at Paddington.

Fondest love from your own Bob.

2. This letter is written to

This letter is written to Jane rather than to Jinnie; was Jinnie's full name Jane?

3. Her name was Clara Jane, but

Her name was Clara Jane, but mostly she was called Jane. Her nickname was Jinnie.
