I have been very busy and am tired so am going to take advantage of your good nature and only send a few lines.

I believe I am to be in the "theatre" even another week. If I am there over Easter I am to have a half day on Monday from 2 pm until 10 pm.

Thank you for your letter, dear. I feel so sorry for Aunt Fanny. Your cousin leaves a widow, doesn't he? I seem to remember hearing he was married.

Did you manage to keep on your horse on Saturday?!

I wonder if you'll manage to get to a service on Good Friday.

I shall be going to the 6 am celebration on Easter Day. I'll write again before then.

With much love from
Your very sleepy
