My dear Mother
It isn’t possible for Rosie to get even a day off, so we must be content with a short weekend. If you will have us, we hope to come down on Saturday by the 1.45. Will you see about having a fly ordered to meet us at Evesham, please? Rosie will not have to be on duty till 3 pm on Monday, so we shall be able to stay till that morning.
Am having a great time and find quite enough to fill it up.
Rather remarkable that next Sunday will see all your three “additional” daughters at Badsey together.
How is my god-daughter? I shall be glad to see her again, and I expect (from all the tales I hear) to be hardly able to recognise her.
I am getting over my ordeal of “parade for inspection” before Rosie undergoes hers. Tomorrow I am going to see Mrs Wilkinson. The next evening (perhaps an almost more formidable occasion) I have to present myself before the searching eye of my brother-in-law to be. If he were ten years older I should take the matter very easily; but Human Boy, aetat 13, is a very merciless critic! He is, by the way, still doing well.
Till next Saturday.
Love to all from
