Dear darling Mother. I am having great fun here. Maurice has caught 3 fish. There is a whole wood full of bilberries. If Papa likes them we will bring a lot home with us. I go with the boys fishing every day. Can Elsa walk yet? Uncle Tom is giving Maurice 20 minutes Latin a day. Will you send Maurice's flask. I do a lot of kniting [sic] here for I take it with me every. I am so sorry this is badly written. Give my love to Papa. I remain your loving daughter Gertrude.
