Rodborough Stroud, Glo'shire England. June 4th 1875.

My dear Sir,

I have been so delighted with a nice copy of your Fairy Tales, given. me by my Godmother on my birthday which was just before yours, that my Father told me I really ought to write and thank you for giving me so much pleasure; I have sendt a likeness of myself and my brother. My Father read to us the "Story of a Mother", he thinks he likes that one best or the "Fellow Traveller", but I like the "Wild Swans", the "Ice Maiden" and the "Snow Queen" and the dear little Mermaid the best of all.

When I was very little and could only say "Traliver" I used to have them read to me.

I hope you will have many more birthdays as pleasant as the last; thanking you for the tales you have written and hoping you will write many more,

I remain yours affectionately

Pauline Bucknall.
