My dear Kath

I have cut out the doll’s pellise and am sending it.  I have allowed plenty in length so you can use plenty for turning.  The [?] is for round the cape, I have put two pieces of silk to face the fronts of the cape, the rest will do quite well with the fine lining.  I have put a piece of material the right size for the neck, I must put some strings to tie it with when it comes back, as I have not got any ribbon now.  I have just put a rough please to show you which is the top.  Hildegarde is going to stay a fortnight or three weeks in Windsor about Nov 5th in Osborne Rd, I suggested she might go and see you while there and she quite fell in with it so very likely you will hear from her a little later on as she has your address.  Today is Kitty Richards’ birthday, did you remember?

After not having had a letter for ages, on Tuesday last week I had a letter from Miss Cave in the morning, a postcard from Violet Milling in the afternoon.  Wed afternoon a letter from V Gepp, Thursday morning a letter from Amy Huss, afternoon letter from B Gepp, Friday afternoon letter from Edith Young; last Sunday postcard from V Gepp, Monday postcard from Arthur and afternoon letter from May.  So I have done pretty well the last few days.

Did you know Miss Bell had gone to Canada with Miss Smith etc?  I did not tell other day, Amy’s Father is to get married again. Poor Amy says she cannot get used to the idea.  He is marrying a widow with one little girl aged six.  I must now write to May.

Much love from Ethel.
