My dear Miss Tomkinson,
It seems a good deal longer than a week ago I was sat at your so friendly round table. You did give me such a happy time & a most valuable insight into how sensibly & cheerfully a Home can be run – The last time I was in this place was 20 years ago! It was a girl’s school then & we had come from St Leonards to play in a tennis match. It was the most important thing in the world to win that match. The awful thing is that at this range I can’t remember if we did or not!
With every good wish to you all,
Yours very sincerely,
