WRITTEN FROM HADDON HALL Dearest M. V.1

No palms4 for us5 today! We got down here2 last night, dead tired, and still feel rather used up. But tomorrow we’ll begin to mend, as they say. All the hotels are crowded for Holy Week, prices are terrifying. But in spite of that we have a grand room on the water front. Sick people must be extravagant. The weather is lovely, and I know by tomorrow we’ll begin to feel the result of it.

Lovingly W. S. C.

P.S. We both like your new bob very much. Stick to it!
