Dearest Kathleen

I was so glad to have a letter qui m’a dit [?] [?] [?] [?] going home on Saturday & shall be so glad when you can [?] [?] [?]I find Harry certainly better & so nice. It is so worrying for him not being able to go to [?] [?]

[section is mixed in with letter of November 25, 1903 – does it belong here?]

I have seen snow for the first time on the Hills very low down.

& we had here such a hail storm wind frightfully cold. We have had such a curious summer & autumn nothing but rain & such awful storms How sweet of you to keep my Calendar near you in yr room. I must send you another to replace it when I go to London Thank you fil2 much I am very well indeed now & the only effects the accident left is I cant walk so much & no-one will take me in a Hansom !now but I must go in them again. it is [?] to be nervous about it. I have my son Claude lives with me in London but he is going ff to Mexico for 2 or 3 months about the 3rd week of next month & I shall try & let my house while he has gone. Harry is still at Liverpool the same ship as he had. he likes it immensely, & has many friends there. besides he really gets away a gt deal for shooting he has been in Scotland 3 times this summer wh is not bad. He is so well. I do hope yr uncle is recovering that you have all good news of him & that this will bring you to England again. I am so glad yr Father is keeping well. he is such a dear. I wd like to see him again. Poor Mrs. Hare. I did not know she [?] lost her husband how sad. What a blessing she has her soldier boy left to her. I ¬∑was so amused to hear about the Masters’ children they must be funny little children & so grown up rather terrible for them of course you know the brother Willie de Winton is going to be married a very nice girl I believe she is too. & they seem to have been attached for some time. I suppose you hear a lot about this Fiscal Policy Business & how Chamberlain has been stumping the country! to spread his views & get hold of the working men. I do not like his policy nor his changes he will never improve the trade or anything else of old England [?] I always have thought him a very unscrupulous man. I wonder what yr Father thinks about it. I must stop now. dearest Kathleen very kind remembrances to him & lots of love for yrself . God bless you ever

yr very affectionate

D. Chesterfield
