Enclosure – Postcard to LR and RG written by Honor Wyatt as dictated by son Julian.

On the pier there's lots of people fishing. The water is like green. It is very deepest. My spade and my bucket. Chocolate ices and ordinary ices. On the pier there are lovely shells stuck to the steps. It is deepest in the sea[HW] garden[HW] because boats want to swim. Now I've sent lots of words to Laura and Robert haven't I, mummy. I've sent my love to Laura and Robert too.
Taken word for word to dictation. –
