Tell Kenneth that as he wouldn't 

send Daddy a kiss in your

letter he ought to write a 

letter himself. Glad to hear

such a good account of the

fertility of the district. It 

would appear that "Baby week"

was not necessary for Grantham.

Remember me to Mrs. Whipple when you

next see her - I expect that

had I been keen at letter writing

I might have written several

times to them. No you don't 

miss two days in working but

the letters are not always

delivered promptly. No the tea

would work out much less than

that & it was a good one

we actually had iced drinks

as well. Glad Alice is doing

so well for you & also that

you have got on so well with

the house. The C.O. said he was

right side

coming to see you early whatever 

arrangements Miss Johnson had made.

Well if it is in my training I did

some good for your energy 

can be employed heaps better

than in "scrubbing." Hope Kennet

will like his new shoes. Hope

he hadn't got a real pain on the

1st. Poor old Can Smith - still it

would furnish a topic for the 

afternoon teas. Yes I saw in the

Journal that he was going south.

Hope Gladys is fit again. Fancy

Kenneth going out walking without

his pram. I expect you would

have a good time at Mrs. Newton's.

Sorry Miss Wakerley's youngsters are

on the sick list & hope they

will soon be well again. Glad

you heard from Mrs. Knox. We

were hoping that Knox would get

away but it does not appear very

likely - still we are having another Coy
