My dear Mother

I fancy I owe you a letter, my home correspondence has lately got rather out of gear.

We were so glad to see May on Monday, her weekend must have been refreshing for her after all her hard work at home.

George was here a couple of days ago and stayed for dinner, he was looking forward to his weekend at Eastbourne. I hope you have been able to get out a lot and find Eastbourne suits you.

The maid arrived yesterday and gives the impression of capability.

I have finished my paper with the exception of proof correcting, so this weekend should be easy. We are planning a theatre for tomorrow night, going to see Kismet which is revived just now, Mary hasn’t seen it, and I am quite prepared to see it a second time.

Aunt Lizzie seems to have made a pretty good recovery from this sharp attack of illness.

Father writes that he will have to leave on the Monday morning, but we hope you will stay on longer.

With love from us both to you, and also to Aunt Lizzie.

From your son
