My dear little girlie how did you like the seaside? I’m sure it was very nice to be there with Mummy & Margaret & Auntie Nellie. This is a very hot place to live in and perhaps some day when you are big you will come to see it. I shall be glad to get home to you again & whistle when I come in and we will play Puff-Puff again together. Be a good little girl and eat you [sic] dinner and drink some [underlined] Milk [/underlined] for me so that you will grow big like Margaret. I hope that you Paddled in the water. With Kisses Daddy.
