General note

A letter written by Dulcie's parent beside the postcard in the memory book reads:
"Dear Dulcie, chiefly for your sake I am taking a house in the country - 'Midhurst' is not a large house but very pretty - almost covered with ivy and climbing roses and honeysuckle and white clematis. There are nice hedges all about our three & a half acres of land and very fine old oak trees in the little meadow at the rear of the house. Here you can run free of boarding house restraint - and also we shall be able to provide for you those good things which, on account of war, conditions are not to be had at shops in town - milk, butter, potatoes, etc., because here we will keep a cow, and have a large garden and Daddy will enjoy the diversion of coming here weekends after his work at the hospital. The pony too will a great delight to your child-heart - 'Dobbin' his name and many miles of sweet English country we will explore together, you & I and 'Daf'! We must get some picture portraits of this place for you so that you may have a clear memory of your life here."
