My dear Father

Lloyds Cheapside write that discount on fully paying up on Sept 14th would be 2/1. They ask for the scrip in due course to enable them to convert the old stock for me. I enclose a cheque for £40 for your account and will you please arrange to have the loan fully paid up at Evesham and the scrip as soon as it comes, transferred to my name and forwarded to The Manager, Lloyds Bank, Cheapside. I will tell the latter that the scrip is to come and ask him to arrange the rest of the business on receiving the necessary papers.

It was very wet here yesterday but I managed to dodge the rain. I hope the wet won’t interfere much with the fruit picking. Mary is getting on well. She sends many thanks on Baby’s account for the voucher. While Baby has much added dignity on getting a stake in the country! The letting of the flat is arranged satisfactorily, I hope and feel that these new people will be satisfactory. I think Mr & Mrs Williams will come down here on Saturday after all, to see their granddaughter baptised. I suppose poor old Jack had to go yesterday. I hope to be able to arrange to meet him in London on Tuesday.

With love to all.

Your affectionate son
