Scope and content

The Green Lady Hostel (Littlehampton).—Refers to her activities alone and with the children. Is thinking of going to Holmwood on Saturday, and agrees that they should ‘fix up’ Canning Town for the 14th. Pearse has sent some money.



The Green Lady Hostel.
4. 9. 01.

Such a perfect day dearest—so fresh so bright so fragrant. Someday I must take you for the walk that I went yesterday—the loveliest wildest tramp the most glorious expanse & freedom.

I do not think that it will be necessary for me to go to Holmwood this week. I may possibly break the journey there on Saturday {1}.

I am glad that you are getting plenty of golf. I think I shall ride to Bognor this afternoon with some of the party.

Your letter this morning was very sweet to me. Your Sweetheart


Just come in from flying a kite—one of those new scientific ones from America. Oh it was pretty to feel it pull—to hear it sing as it came down. Yes—we will fix up Canning Town for the 14th. Your bicycle is mended. It was the darling Daddy sent me the kite & a cheque for £23 this morning which make† £50 since I came here. Isn’t he an angel?—Oh—oh—but I do want to see him again. Getting awful hungry. Me go cry! like Freddy go when him hungry—!


{1} 7th.

† Sic.
