HOTEL BURGUNDY 8, rue Duphot, 8 PARIS Thursday May 21st '96 My Dearest One, I can only give you a line tonight as I have such a naughty headache. We reached Paris last evening and went to a Pension which did not prove quite all it was pictured to us, so this morning we transferred our selves and our affections to the old stamping ground Hotel Burgundy. We did the ["Louvre" ?] gallery this afternoon & then took a lovely drive down the Champs Elysees to the Arc de Triomphe & back by way of the [Madeleine ?]
Oh, how I wish you were here, my dear one, how we should enjoy it together. Dad and I talk english with the utmost [sincerity ?] to these poor wretched frenchmen. We find that if we make no attempt at French, they manage to understand us some how. What joy it will be to get back to the land of tea, tea, tea, and soap. I expect your letter of Sunday May 11th is already in England I shall get it by Saturday How little I thought just a month ago tonight that
I should be in Paris the night of your graduation. We had a beastly rough passage crossing the Channel but managed not to be sick by being flat on our backs. This letter is a terrible jumble. Give love to dear Elsie and oh so much for my own darling, for you my dearest love Your Grace We have seen Marie twice in London.
