\"My very dear Alphonse, How nice and good it is of you to have thought of the birthday of your old Aunt. A thousand thanks for your dear letter of the 13th that I received on the 17th. I am spending this day, that brings me each year nearer to my end, cheerful and happy surrounded by my dear ones. Before I continue to write I must wish you hasppiness on your brother Arthur\'s birthday. To hear that you are worrying about your youngest children saddens me a lot. I wish you could go to Dohl where the wonderful air, good water, also the baths are so outstanding and would also benefit you.
I have written to you only recently and my eyes are so bad that I must already say farewell.A thousand regards to your Resi. Your loving Aunt Victoria. Do write again soon to say how your children are.\"
