My dear dear May

I hope you are quite well.  I wonder what it is like on board ship, I hope your beds are comforterbel and that you don’t get tossed out of them.  I send you 5 or 6 kisses night and morning and I hope you do so to us.  Ethel is very busy with her dress so I am rather left to my own devices but I manage fairly well.  Ethel just manages to squeeze in a few lessons.  I made a frame out of a box and I put some violets in it, I shall be very glad when I have my new garden.  I took the cats out in the perambulator today, I took them down the road and into the village to the front gate, I think they enjoyed it very much.  Ethel says that the machine is enough to egasparrate a pig as it won’t work.  It is nearly seven o’clock and I want to go on with [?] mother’s skirt so till I write next.

Your loving sister
