Hope the weather will keep 

fine so that you can get

out a good deal. Ta very

much Lassie but I have

managed real well for 'bacca tobacco

except for one spell.

  Glad you like being back

home. No I know you don't

go about with a long face

Sweetheart any more than I

do. That would be a poor

show for both of us. I do

want you to be happy & I

love to hear that you are

doing things because we

used to like doing them

together. I am not surprised

at Flo talking but she

does not understand that

life is good when one does

things. Why should you

attempted to get down to

a dead level when you

right side

have your own personality

& your own ideas by which

to order your life. Of course

people talk about everyone 

who is different from what

they imagine themselves to be

& as there is no one else

in the world like my Lassie

people will talk about you.

It doesn't matter a bit so

long as we love does it

Sweetheart. Glad you & 

Kenneth had a good time 

at Shirley Croft. What did 

the family think of him? Your

letter did arrive on my

birthday & it was most welcome.

  It is 9:30 now & I have handed 

over A Coy & shall have to be

moving off. It will be strange

not having my company but I

expect I'll get used to it in 

time. 'spect I expect I shall think things
