My dearest Robin,
I got your letter [Robin–December 29, 1908] this morning and am just sending you a few lines in answer by this mail. I have not time for a proper letter as I have been over at Daylesford all day and have to make an early start to hunt at Chipping Campden tomorrow.
I have only time to say please come back to me soon, I simply long for just a look at you. You talk about next summer but that seems such a very long way off–you must come before then. Can’t the tiresome old farm spare you? You must make it, for I do want you back–almost more than usual tonight, I think.
I will answer your letter by the next mail.
Always your loving
The latest excitement in the neighborhood is Guelina Cheetham’s engagement to Mr. Fawnthorpe, a friend of Jack Cheetham’s, which was announced yesterday.
