Dear Miss O’Reilly
I cannot tell you how I thank you & feel so touched by yr kind thought of me sending me those lovely violets it was too sweet and dear of you. Thank you many many times. I do love the flowers so – an envoi des fleurs that goes straight to my heart

Be sure to come & see me when you come back to London – just send me a little line to say if you will lunch or tea one day that I may be at home. I heard from my son yesterday – he seems well & had much enjoyed a trip they had taken to [?] & getting away from the Harbour w11 they dont seem to care about.

Ever ys very sincerely

D. Chesterfield(*1)
