to know we have had such

good times together.

  It is very good of John & I hope

he won't really land where

you say. I want leave for

my special birthday present

but expect it will be

delayed a few weeks. It 

will be welcome when it comes.

  Kenneth must be a big

fellow almost three feet tall.

Glad Miss Hall wrote to you

you must have had a 

cheerful party at Flo's. Wish

I could have seen Kenneth.

He must look well in that

new suit.

  Had a note from Archie

last night - he has been

accepted for the Cadet School

& will have started now - a

three month course I believe.

  Tell Kenneth I'll come home

as soon as I can.

  Must send this to post now

& also get some day clothes 

on. 

  Love & kisses for Kenneth
