My dear Mother
Grandma and Auntie were very pleased with the poultry, eggs and roses, also the apricots, the roses are rather faded now but Auntie is going to pick out the best and put them in one vase. Yesterday morning when we got up we went into the bathroom and had a jolly bath; after breakfast Uncle took us down the sea, it was very calm, while we were going down he gave us sixpence each. When we got down on the beach Uncle left us as he had a little business to do in the town. We then sat down on the beach and watched the bathers, next we climbed about some rocks, then we saw a steamer go off. We next went to the Pier where we had to pay a penny each, there we saw a very large steamer start, it was going to Boulogne, there were a lot of passengers and heaps of luggage. There were also a few horses on board. May and I are going to have a bath tomorrow, it will be great fun. We went to the Parish Church this morning, the church was crammed. After church we walked along the Lees. The band is playing in the park this afternoon, it plays every Sunday afternoon from 3 to 6 pm. Cyril would like being here as you can see all the trains going by. With love to you all, I remain.
Your loving daughter
