My Dear Ethel (Love from Nelly)
Nelly & I are spending our holiday here - & having a real good rest. I called to see your Dad last week - he was pleased to see me. I have been so busy in all ways lately - but he has called to see me twice - unsuccessfully.
The weather here is perfect - not too hot but a lovely breeze. We have been here a week, but have really only rested so far. I felt so tired & weary when I came away but am so much better already.
Mother keeps fairly well - the specialist I took her too(sic) in Harley St. says that she has entirely lost the sight of one eye - & has a cataract growing on the other. It may take from 6 months to 3 years to grow - but when ?...? by Gods providince(sic) - she might see again after an operation.
Naturally this has worried us a lot but we must leave things & wait I am hoping she will always be able to see a little - she ?....? dreads an operation so much.
I am glad to say Nelly seems much better in herself - her legs seem very weak - especially her ankles - but otherwise she is much brighter.
Folkstone is very full - we have spent most of our time in the East Coast - away from the crowds.
Leah & Mother have been to Devonshire for a week - do you remember when we used to meet them at ?Westmens? Park & carry their bag?
By the way - has your little scheme ?prospered? at all? I have not forgotten it by any means - but have not mentioned it to any one. Much love dear to yourself - I saw the drawings of your house - also planting of anemonies which is [missing bit] ?beautiful, so ?...? - much love dear Bessie".
