I so much agree with all you say…..your lovely letter is greatly appreciated.
Also such a dear one from Jessie. Give her my love & thanks.
C has told me of the passing of ‘Aunt Ada”. I had so many wonderful contacts with her. A letter had come from her only about two weeks ago & strangely I felt as I read it that she would not be in a physical body much longer but I did not realize that the
passing would come so suddenly - Sybil, I have seen in this country & she told me how she was with Faye Faye when she died.
The passing of Aunt Ada brings back so vividly memories of you. For it was [Mrs Back] who came to tell me you had been arrested on that eventful day- and it was [Mrs Back] who gave me the first news of Mrs Pankhurst long sentence- Indeed when I look back over those years I find that Mr [Gordon] and Mrs [Back] were so often at hand in a crisis.
Annie darling. I love you.
Never forget it.
