My Own Darling Wife,

                                 I am sitting in my armchair

being lazy after tea. The sun has been shining

brightly all day long and it is as warm

as a midsummer day. However we have no

work to do in the day time so we can sit or

lie in the shade enjoying the pleasant warmth.

Everyone agrees that it is better to be too hot

than wet and up to the knees in mud.

The postman forgot to bring me any letters last

night but I didn't really answer your 

last one yesterday when I wrote that I hurried note

as I was going out our "Working Party"

Kenneth will give me a good time I can 

easily see. It seems wonderful that he

can express his ideas and ask questions

I shall have to keep my ideas up to

unless I want him to catch me outmissing

No Lassie there are very few days passmissing

without my getting a letter + I don'tmissing
