Knaresboro. We are enjoying our rest

period very much + I am especially

grateful for my nice warm comfy

bed. Yes the CO is at Beckett's Park.

Wonder if you have gone over to

Annie's at all. Sorry to hear Mary

was not better but hope she is

feeling more like her old self by

now. Poor Lassie the strain for her

must have been very great. Hope

the change will have the desired

effect. Hope you are having a

good time by yourselves. I expect

Harry is feeling the change. It was

only an excuse before for he went

out because he wanted to - the

same reason as he goes now. He

likes to talk in a circle of men -

perhaps when he gets married he

will stay at home - perhaps not.

I am afraid he has a lot to learn.

There will never be the old Home to
