Friday 95 Sloane Street. Dearest Mother. May I please give you some orders for Marie. The watch she sent here is not the right one. I want the gun metal watch in a green leather wristband. This is very important. I know it is at home. I want it sent to Dibdins to be cleaned, and returned by them here. I shall need it if I go abroad.
Marie did not send the blue brocade gown here as I told her to do. Very stupid and careless of her. If I had not by good luck brought one up from Clandon I should have had nothing to wear.

I will send her the silk shirt as a pattern as soon as it comes back from the wash.

I shall want her to make the flannel shirt quickly. I'll write tomorrow to you. Your affectionate daughter Gertrude.

She is to send here too my blue green silk day down from Osporat.
