Dear General Pitt Rivers

I am so sorry to have been so long sending you the Russian pad-lock which I promised you when we met over your most delightfully interesting Museum in November last. I dare say that you have forgotten us but we shall never forget that pleasant afternoon!

How little we thought then, that my husband's [illegible] cousin, Sir Thomas Grove, would so soon be called away!

I hope that you are feeling better and that Mrs Pitt-Rivers and your sons are well We were so sorry to hear that Lady Walter Grove had not been well. I trust that it was not anything serious

Ever yours sincerely

Alice K. Standen

P.S. General & Mrs Hamilton are in Guernsey now for a short time Dear Kathleen de Montmorency was with us yesterday A.S.
