you were very brave when I

came away. I am glad you are

comfy & happy at home. I hear

that the C.O. has got over to

Leeds & finds it a good change.

Kenneth is a good laddie & I

do like to read of his doings

in your letters. Glad you

enjoyed tea at Littlewoods. Yes

the Old Man has the power & has

done the deed so I shall look

out for something else. I don't 

like the idea of going back to

a company at present especially

after five months away from that

work. I wouldn't mind if there

was anything against me but

there isn't. I don't think you

will enjoy seeing Arendyen but

I shouldn't worry much  - do as little

as possible. Yes £2 is fairly stiff

but after all it is worth it

to be settled. I'll send a cheque

right side

shortly - or you had better do it

for me as I haven't many cheques

left in my book. I hope you

will like the work at the hospital.

Don't do too much though

Sweetheart. I am keeping very

fit & well in spite of the wet 

& the cold. We don't know what

we are going to do but for 

the present we are in a safe

area. I am feeling a bit

fed up with things now but

I expect I shall become pleased

with life again shortly. Sorry

if this letter is too much of

a grumble. My thoughts are

ever with you Darling & I

want to do well for your

sake & Kenneth's. I love you

& want you. I expect the

war will end some day

& then what a time we

shall have together. I love
