I have so wanted to write to you tonight but I have simply been inundated with visitors - the last one has just gone. They've all welcomed me back sweetly.

Sammy had put some lovely flowers in my room. I saw her for a few minutes before she went on duty.

My little glimpse into Paradise has done me good. And now I must try and be a good girl and resign my will to that of our Heavenly Father and leave the future in His hands. I miss your presence with me intensely at this moment - our evening hour.

Give my love to the others - I hope to write tomorrow but do not promise.

Best love dear heart.

From your devoted
