Birthday letter to Grannie

To the dear Queen of all the Ls
I dedicate with love this little book
It is not as perfect as I’d have it be
But it is full of humble love from me

I can’t be there when you open it
Yet it is me and therefore am I in it!
It is to wish you many good returns
Both of your birthday and its happiness
With my best love and wishes manifold

Thus do I sign myself in this small corner
Your very loving, but most humble, Lorna

This is the birthday letter from Lorna to her paternal grandmother, enclosed with Grannie's garden of verse in February 1931.
