get as good a Bn as he can + he

job for a man he wants to keep.

I was talking to Roffey who is acting

Bn for about 20 months. My head is

quite fit again now Ta Lassie. I 

am still writing to Haya Park until

I hear you have gone to Leeds. Wait

until the Rev Father sends for the

rent but if he doesn't send within
