About this item
Clandon. Nov 12 Dearest Mother. Of course let us use Florence's kind gift - as much as you like of it. Elsa and I will share the balance, whatever it is, of the mitten bill. I'm quite glad to have some of the price taken off me for there are constant small things cropping up here - little things they ask for and that one gives - and besides I have a weekly contribution to the Bellgians at home.
I have been sorting and distributing French novels all the afternoon after hanging about and doing nothing most of the morning. Could you send me an old Bradshaw? I mean a last month's copy, or any that is done with. A man has begged me for an English railway guide! He said it would interest him so much to read it! Your affectionate daughter Gertrude
