My dear Nellie -

I have cut the enclosed from the Weekly Sun[3] - and send it over to you so that you may hunt one of those new cooking bijou stoves up!

If you will be so nice, I am sure you could soon find out all about them - I wish you would - and send us the drawing of one; and see if it is natty and elegant and would really work well on the breakfast table - Also of course whether it is dear - and all the rest of it -

[p. 2] Will you do this and let us know all about it?

How are you all? Write us some news - Have you had the Sickerts[4] to dinner? -

Isn't Mrs. Sophie[5] ever going to send us the photographs she took?

With love from all

[butterfly signature]

Have you seen James Caird[6]? He will have told you all about us.
