9th April 10 Bellgrave Terrace My dear Papa I like the riding very much I see the primroses in the hedges and I am learning to rise in my stirrups. One day we went for a drive with the maids and gathered lots of primroses. We shall be very glad to see you again and hope it will be as fine as it is now. Shall we have some Easter eggs? I should like Ambrose to come very much. We are now going out for a walk with Mahoo. Maurice and I send best love and many kisses to you ever your loving child Gertrude
The children are both quite well. M.H.
