TO


MARGARET OSTLER


WITH LOVE FROM


E. NESBIT


Peggy, you came from the heath and moor, And you brought their airs through my open door; You brought the blossom of youth to blow In the Latin Quarter of Soho.


For the sake of that magic I send you here A tale of enchantments, Peggy dear, --A bit of my work, and a bit of my heart... The bit that you left when we had to part.


_September 25, 1907._ ROYALTY CHAMBERS, SOHO, W.
