Riverwoods House

April 23rd 1919

My own dear Cyril

Just a few lines to let you know I got here safely, having had quite a comfortable journey – and a seat all the way. From Reading there was a queer old man in the train who handed round tracts in the carriage. I must have either looked very saintly, or else too wicked to be helped in any way, for he did not hand me one, to my great relief!

Miss Timpson has sent me a card saying she need not leave town until May 4th, and asking if we would like her to remain in the house until then. I am accepting her offer to remain and if convenient to her I am going to see her tomorrow.

It is decided that you and George go to the Graves.

It is a lovely day today – very warm. Mother and I are just going out shopping so goodbye for the moment.
With love to everyone and messages from Mother and Bar. The latter is delighted with the bulbs.

Deepest love, dear man o’mine.

Your devoted
