My Own Darling,

             Just a short note this

time. I will answer your 36, which

I received to-day, tomorrow we

have had a day of rain to-day

for a change + so we have

not been able to do much

outside. The chief news to-day I

saw in the Daily Mail increases

of pay to officers. It will make

a good few people a little better

off I should say. As far as we

are concerned it means an

extra shilling per day and 1/3¾ per

day for Kenneth. As that makes

our Laddie 'worth' two pounds a

month extra we had better

start a banking account for him
