26Apr1864, First Letter From Him

OSBORNE, Tuesday, April 26th, 1864.
—Same brightness, but E. wind. I wrote 8 answers to congratulations ; all "thank you" in different forms. And I received my first letter from him : such a dear one ! grave and simple, like himself. It makes it all very real to me. What paper is it written upon but a Privy Council Office sheet, reminding me of the Garibaldi entry day ?
