Letter from Mary Russell Mitford, 1787-1855
Transcription by Fiona Mitford, 2006

Fair May beneath thy feet the grass is set
With violets, cowslips, primroses, all wet
With perfect dew, are very crystal clear.
The earth, the joy, the music of the year
art thou. Who loves thee not? Gay songs of birds
Tell thy delights, and rude [uncorked?] words
of shepherds.

Mary Russell Mitford
Three Mile Cross
August 25th 1846

With Miss Mitford’s compliments to Mr [Hacey?]
