Mlle Souvestre to Mrs Strachey

Scope and Content

Thanks her at some length for her letter; she will endeavour to answer her numerous questions but she is a very bad raconteur. No, they certainly do not regret their trip to England. The whole set up was charming and impressive; 'vous ne soupconnez point combien vous etes des etres distingues et charmants ressemblant peu au reste des brutes terrestes'. Lina was not tired with the journey and was well for a week but then had a slight relapse. Everything goes well at Les Ruches and the pupils with one exception very charming. Sends messages to all in the family. A message written at the end by Mlle C. Dussant. With envelope. Sent from Les Ruches.
