About this item
95 Sloane Street Nov 22 Dearest Mother. Here is the cheque - thank you very much. The watch is not here and Marie knows perfectly well that it is not. There is a small gold watch here which is a. not mine, and b. broken. I want a gunmetal watch in a green wrist band. I always wear it hunting. She is really abominably careless. It was on my dressing table the morning I left Rounton. When I asked her for it here she replied that she could not find it and took no further trouble.
I had a very nice evening with Elsa and Herbert who were both most cheerful. Your affectionate daughter Gertrude
Will you please hand the enclosed to Father and tell him I don't want to take up the 3 shares allotted to me. Can't I make some money by disposing of my option?
[Note on back of envelope] I have found my watch - at the bottom of the linen drawer!
