Many thanks for your ppc which I was glad to get. What a fearfully long day you had – no wonder you could not find time to write.

I should like a ppc of South Tidworth Church some time.

I am still with the same case - he must have extraordinary vitality. 

Have you heard that Mary crosses to France today to join Arthur at Nantes with any luck.

Best love from Mela
