Extraordinary Autograph Letter in the hand of Victoria Signed by the four oldest children to Mrs Tylor thanking her "many times for the nice presents you were so kind as to send us, the books are very pretty & amusing & gave us all a great deal of pleasure.

The tool boxes you gave us last year are very useful to us & we use them often. It is very cold now & we hope soon to be able to skate if the frost continues. We hope you have all had a merry Xmas & that your dear little white ponies are well. We often think of the pleasant days we spent at Carshalton. We are very sorry not to have written sooner & Mama sends you many wishes for this New Year ...", 4 sides 8vo., on monogrammed notepaper, Darmstadt, no date
