"Swanage Pier - Swanage is a pretty seaside resort nestling in the base of the Purbeck Hills, a delightful steamer ride from Bournemouth.  The Old Harry Rocks are natural monoliths gradually wearing away by the action of the sea.
After the original painting by H.B. Wimbush."

"How I wish you were here you would enjoy it, the weather is lovely, trust you are well, also dear little Kittie, I am a little better, Much kind Love, G.H - Sept 20th 1905"

"Thank you so much for the blackberries.  I saw some in the shop yesterday 5d a lb. & rotten looking things.  These are perfect.  Will send back your tin later, must put something nice in it first.  Am going boating again tomorrow with LD.  We are having glorious weather.  Fond love, May.  Many thanks also for the letter."
