My Darling Marion,

          I have no other paper handy

so must use a sheet or two of my HB 153

Ta for your letter just received dated

16th inst. As you will see by my other letter

the rest period has been somewhat changed

+ much shortened. I think I must have got the

parcel before the letter. Hope you had

a good tea - play time. Yes you told

me about the Balls' going. If I were you

I would write to the Electric Light People

+ tell them that you will pay £1 a

quarter (as agreed) until the amount is

paid off. (£1 a quarter for 3 years). I think

we have paid £5 at least. Tell them we

do not prospect to buy "hire - purchase"

unless using the lighting apparatus. They 

cannot do other than agree & I have

told them several times that that was

what I should do with regard to the 10/9

that is a mistake in their bill & this

also I have pointed out on several occasions
