My dear Nellie -

I was so pleased to get my dear Sister's nice little letter[2] to me - But now you must get this to her with the enclosed cutting, which will tell her what she very properly wished to know - that is the reason for my sudden coruscations in the Morning Post[3]! -

I shall probably [p. 2] leave here for London by the end of this week - and will come and ask you for all news! -
