My Dear Aunt Alice,
I received your welcome letter & was blessed to hear you enjoyed yourselves at Christmas. You say that my young man should be fair will you have thought right. Tilly had a letter from Uncle Walter & he seems very cheerful the way he writes. How is my cousins getting on? Mother has had the flu + bronchitis it is about a lot here. Aunt Anna is no better. Mother will be going down there soon. Uncle Walter writes that Hilda is about to marry a widower will you tell her that I wish her luck & happiness. I am sorry I am not over there to see you all in America. Annie is thinking about moving into another country she writes that Holding is the dreariest place to live everything is so high up in taxes. She is so wishing that mother should go over there. Well Aunt I hope & trust that when you come to England again you will have nice weather & some cheerful people to chat with. I expect John will soon be leaving you & what about Walter has he a young lady or doesn't he believe in them I expect he thinks they are very expensive & I am sure my young man thinks me expensive never mind you can only be single once so we may as well enjoy ourselves. How is Uncle Fred? I would like to hear from him it seems that we have no an uncle not hearing from him. Well Aunt we have had a great honour the Prince of Wales has visited Wapping & had several chats with the men & women.
Well I must conclude with love from all in England
From your Affectionate Niece Grace. Cheerio.
