My Dearest Boo
What a sweet little bundle you have produced! I swear I can still smell his adorable head under my nose. Please accept the mittens I enclose. I knitted them myself and put a kiss in every other stitch!
Mr Hatherwick is as delighted as I am to hear of Bradstone’s appearance in the world and has asked me to pass on his best to you and Mr Pitt. Indeed I do detect a hint of envy in him. At least, when I told him your happy news he said that he wished he could have shared in it with you. If your new baby has unleashed something in my husband, as I dearly hope it has, it may not be long before I have some news of my own….
Pardon my prattle, Boo and give that boy a cuddle
His Aunt Effie xx
