Dear Beryl1

I felt that you wanted to see Ursula so much that I must spare her for a day or two.  I know how much you liked having her, and I know how glad I am to have her back.  She had a very comfortable journey.
Thank you very much for the good wishes for our journey.2
Your peaches tasted lovely
Love from
