Mlle Souvestre to Mrs Strachey

Scope and Content

She had promised on leaving her friend not to write her. Circumstances had made it easy to keep her promise as she had been so busy. Nevertheless she had never ceased to think of her. She had noted that the infant Pippa already showed signs of the Strachey heredity. Lina is definitely better since their return from England. She longs to know how she and the family are 'You have said that there were only two people in the world who loved you, but do believe that you are a little loved by your Marie'.
