General note

A letter written beside the postcard in the memory book reads:
"Here we all are seen, Dulcie, and haven't you a funny foot? Isn't 'Daf' a darling trying to oust 'Twiddles' from my lap and what fun those two animals have, chasing each other! I have never before seen a cat & a dog play together - these two are the delight of all who see them. They have a regular 'children's hour' every evening, playing up in the corner of the room of the window. Just above my head there is a swallows nest and there are four little heads sticking out over the edge of the nest with their beaks wide open - the parent birds are very busy flying to the next with morsels of food & away after more."
