My dear Eugénie
I must not let another day pass without writing to thank you for your beautiful present to Walter and me on our wedding day. We shall always value it very highly and think of you when it is on our table in our far distant house. I am so sorry that I shall not see you again for I have always been very fond of you. You know I am one of you now. I was so glad to see Gus and Joe and your Father, they are coming to dine with me this evening.
Walter has to be in the City all day doing some business and saying goodbye to some of his friends and he asked me to give you his love in this letter and his thanks, dear, for your affectionate remembrance of us on Thursday and for the beautiful present you sent us.
Walter is so good to me and I think we shall be very happy in our new life, his character is so beautiful and so much to be honoured and trusted that I cannot fail to be a very happy wife.
I hope to meet you again some day, do not forget me, dear Eugénie, and believe me.
With much love to be.
Your affectionate sister
