I received your letter yesterday afternoon containing the news that the house would not prorogue for a fortnight. It made me so homesick I did not want to go to Ellie�s for tea. Life is not worth living, dearie, when you have to be in one part of the world and I in another�.
I am reading a funny book �The Voyage of Consolation� by Sara Jeannette Duncan. It is a sequel to �An American Girl in London� and is very amusing.
Come home soon, dearie, to your lonesome wife who is never going to let you go away again.
