Letter From Gwen Nelson 1935

Havelock Nth
March 24th

Dear Cousin Mary,

Your kind letter was a joy to me. Thank you so much for writing and saying such kind things about Ruth & myself. We have done what we could to help Mother but that was very little – she bore the burden so well & cheerily. She was a marvel –

Then I have also to thank you both for your lovely

gift of flowers. Mother loved flowers so much & I thought it especially kind of you to send her some –

We all join in thanks to you both.

With love from family
