Dear Hans Anderson
Do not think my sister[Lily] and I very rude in writing to you.
We are little English girls, and want to thank you very much for your beautiful stories we have a large book of them and very aften read them. I like the "Little Match Girl" The Angel and the child and The story of your Life.
Mama has just read to us the account in Temple Bar - and we have laughed at the story of the carrots.
Would you cut me a little figure I will keep it for ever and prize it for your sake.
I wish you would come to England that we might see you, and then you would perhaps tell me a story.
I am dear Hans Anderson
Your little English friend
