Seward House, Badsey

Dear Cyril

A pc from you to your Father arrived today on which you mention you have written to me. So I expect if my letters are forwarded promptly I may get yours tomorrow. We are so glad to get news after so many weeks. Your pc is dated Jan 5th.

Wilfred arrives this afternoon. I heard from him this morning – he will probably stay until Saturday morning. He has a week’s leave. It will be very jolly having him. It is just a year ago since Cecil stayed here.

Best love – and good luck.
