We found everything very interesting, and enjoyed our little visit very much, returning on the 12:05 train.The ladies both inquired very particularly about you; also about your daughters and their families. They asked many times if we though you would come again to Scotland to visit them, and begged us to urge you to do so. The mother wished me to write to you and tell you that "she is an old woman now, 86, and does not expect to be long in this world, and would so love to see you once more in Dunbar."I hope you can see your way clear to make them a visit for they seemed so very anxious to see you.We find Edinburgh a very beautiful and interesting city, and have enjoyed our stay here very much.With many thanks for your courtesy and thoughtful kindness, in introducing us to your cousin and daughter, and with the kindest regards to you from each of us, I am,Very sincerely,Mary E Newton.July 28, 1910.
