They all seemed happy and was surpised to see me I was around london quite a bit.
A guide took us from 1 oclock until 530 we saw every thing that was worth seen. London is a fine place just another big city crowded with people some lovelys tores the gardens arnt so nice as Edenbough I called at Ednebough on my way back the gardens now are lovely and so well kept the flowers are marvelous. The people are nicer in Scotland than in London. I find them so well england is afl flat Except to the west it is more like home so the tell me
