Dear S.

A parcel arrived this morning

from Nunroyd! It was addressed to me

+ I opened it, two of the contents are: a

letter from Mr Webster + the shoes. The

remaining articles can stay as a surprise.

How do you like this weather? a slight

improvement? This morning I walked to

Wath - the milestones say four miles

six miles would be nearer. I set off at

10-40a.m + arrived there noon. The church

is a grand little place + the rectory is ideal

The Rev. W. J. has been most fortunate

I should think he prefers it to Archbishop's

I met him going to the station accompanied

by his daughter - the talking machine

was in active service. The walk was

glorious - wished you had been there. The

birds numbers of them Chaffinches as

tame as could be - yellowhammers having

marital trouble, + quite a number of robins

on odd branches warbled forth. I think I

have never seen so many blue tits before +

their acrobatic feats were worthy of The Black Watch

morning jerks. Had Petter from The McGregor of

the B.A.S. They are having battles royal with

Miss A. I am going to pull her up. - she has been
