Text of Letter



We have had a heavy day.  Otherwise I would write a letter tonight but I’m sure you’ll forgive me if I postpone writing until tomorrow and go to bed instead.

I am getting on finely now dear and think Sister trusts me now to do my work thoroughly.  I was delighted to get all your news and pleased you are in pleasant quarters.

You are a Funny Old Thing to walk out of telling me my failings so beautifully!  If you were here I’d, I’d ….. kiss you!

Best love from your own
