I wonder how you & Kenneth are

getting along. I wish I could be

with you to help you to settle 

down & to look after you - for the

period during which I am

"Boss" I had a letter from Archie

last night to say he was going

to a cadet school last week & hoped

to pass out well enough to get

a commission. His wife has not

been able to live with him but

hopes to for a time now. They both

wished to be kindly remembered

to you. I had a letter from

Daisy also & she seems to have

enjoyed her stay at York & is

having a good time now. She said

"My word what a lovely boy Kenneth

is." What do you think of that

Lassie Eh! I also had a 

letter from Mrs. Johnston (Dublin)

She hoped you were both well

& happy. She wrote a very nice

letter in reply to one I managed 

to send.
