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.
