My dear Douglas

You will be surprised to read that I am writing this letter to you sitting in the Imperial Café at Ilkley at 12-15. We came by train to Skipton & on the[?] bus to Ilkley. It is a lovely morning & we are glad we have come. [paragraph symbol] 1-10 pm & now we are sitting on the moor[?] after quite a good meal. We had the carriage to ourselves in the train to Skipton but the bus was packed. There is only an hourly service so we shall get away early & perhaps call to see Hole’s[?] tho’ [sic] we may decide to go straight home on the 5.38 train. We had a good day at Manchester & I ordered the glasses which will be forwarded in about 3 weeks. Dad bought me a most beautiful pair of gloves, in good time for my Xmas & birthday present. I am very thrilled to have them. When we had been home a little while Mrs Haworth brought your parcel which had arrived by the afternoon post.
