My Own Darling Marion,

  Many thanks for parcel

received this morning along with your

No 19 - both very welcome. I think you

did right to talk to nurse & I am

sure Kenneth's sister will be very

welcome. Well I certainly was not

very inclined to move & thought

they might find a ghost of a chance

& I like Norton's advice. Yes I gave

them hope of our clearing out on a 

definite date but the nearest I

could fix for them was six

months after the declaration of peace.

I'll have to answer the letter I received.

I could do it through Norton

but I don't think it will hurt if

I tell them that I cannot bother to

correspond with them further & that
