[Croall] writing from Coronado Beach, California. To 'my dearest lady' i.e. Pippa and his sister Ethel who was at school at Allenswood. He tells her that he has just been married to a beautiful American; he looks hopefully every day for a letter from her, but when he feels lonely and sad he can always think of her sitting in her little room, and then a great peace comes to him. Enquiries for various members of the Strachey family. Sent Jan 1899.
