My Own Darling,

  My letter last night 

turned out to be a very short one

but I have to work at times you

see. Our move forward has been

put off for a week or ten days

so we shall have a still longer

rest. Last night Sherwell & Vincent

dined with me and after dinner

Sherwell & I went to cheer up Fox

who was still in bed. He got up

to-day but still feels a bit

washy. To-day I have been buzzing

round most of the day only as it

was a nice day I rode on Sally

instead of walking. I had a 

letter yesterday from Auntie Janice

in which she told me that

my Grandfather at Hamden had

died after a few days illness.
