My Own Darling Wife,

         I received your letter of

Saturday + Sunday last night and

was pleased to see that you had

been able to get in a visit to

Lills + Edward. Kenneth must be

having a rare time + I can see

he is looking after Mammy very

well. What a pity I could not

be with you to help to pass

the time until they returned

from York. It would have been

nice wouldn't it? Like

old times. Wonder if I would

have interfered with your

reading! Sorry about the Doctor

but you see many of the good

ones are out here. I see Pretty

(Capt RAMC now) was mentioned

in dispatches the other day. I hear
