Kenneth Daddy often gathers

sticks for the fire out here. It 

is not a very difficult job

where all the houses have been

blown into little bits. Fancy

him rolling up that wire - it 

must have been very amusing.

Ta Darling for telling me

such a lot about Kenneth's

doings - pity he cannot write 

& tell me all about his 

Mommy.

  Glad to hear that Mother is

keeping pretty well. Give her my

love & tell her to look after

herself well.

  Well Darling I want you to 

be happy & comfortable & to

please yourself but I really 

think you are better at home 

& with Maud & John instead

of at Grantham & if the Balls

want to stay for some time I should

right side

let them. Even if you do go

back you must go away for

several holidays. Kenneth would

love some days by the seaside

when the weather is warm enough.

  Yes Lassie the weeks are

long that's why I want you 

to have a good time so that

the time will pass the more 

quickly, till I join you again.

  People may say you are 

lucky but what do they know.

I know you are brave & plucky

to keep smiling but I should

be miserable if I thought

you were not having as good

a time as possible. Let my

whiskers grow - yes when it is

impossible to shave. You would 

have laughed to have seen us

all the morning we got here. It

was four or five days I think since

any of us had had either a wash
