Nov 2 Red Barns, Coatham, Redcar. Dearest Mother. The book is in your boots, says Mary, your snow boots. She packed everything together. This check is no good for Joseph Wray is dead and unable to sign it. Mary gave Mrs Wray the money so will you send a cheque for ú1.0.3d to her.
We are all going to Rounton this afternoon - thank you for the two novels. Papa is sending back A. Hope and I expect there will be more to send on Monday. When you have finished Renan you might take it to the L.L. as it will save postage - there is no sort of hurry, only I mean I don't want it any more.

Give my love to Mrs Ward and Dorothy - I wonder how Arnold is prospering at Oxford. Please tell Elsa I was much interested by her account of Q.C. I thought the history questions rather nice - I think I should have done the one about Will III and Cromwell if I had been they, it was the easiest. Your affectionate daughter Gertrude
