Tuesday Red Barns, Coatham, Redcar. Dearest Mother. Mrs Wray appeared with the enclosed as soon as you were gone and wished to be paid at once. However we sent her away with an evasive answer.
We have had our aged friend to tea and we are now all sitting in Elsa's room. She seems particularly cheerful.

You never told me what to do with the Liberty patterns. Hoggard doesn't seem inclined to send the photographs today but perhaps he will. Your affectionate daughter Gertrude
