Dearest Father
   Just a note to say how very very happy I was to see you yesterday and how much I enjoyed our lunch and talk! I only hope you feel as young as you look and that your bout of ill health is a thing of the past. The girls looked so well and charming, too. Wee Jeannie though looks almost too young to have a real live husband. She ought to be married in a daisy chain with the Wedding Service read from a Seed Catalogue, as it used to be when we were children.
   It is a sad pity that New Zealand is so far, dearest Papa. How nice if we could all foregather more often. By this same post I am sending you a copy of my book. With fondest love
                    Ever your devoted child
