Scope and Content

Written from Hotel des Trois Couronnes, Vevey, Vaud. Letter is unfinished.

Sends her greetings. She has just spent a week at Neuchatel seeing as much of the Humberts as she could, but she suffered so much from the cold there that she had to retreat to a warmer spot. At Vevey there is no snow and so the temperature is much higher. Delighted with their present of a warm dressing jacket. Feels very lonely especially at anniversaries, but she is advised not to leave in mid-winter.

'George has sent me the sweetest photograph of little Hetha'. Hetha was her granddaughter.
