My dear Etty and May and Arcon

My sweet peas are coming out nicely.  I might have some roses coming out this summer.  I have been swinging on the granary swing without Boo holding me.  Bunny hasn’t been buried yet, Bunny was not fed on Saturday night.  Bunny is going to have something to eat tonight, Dorsey and me, and Boo sometimes, feed him in the morning.  The garden is getting on very well.  It is a nasty day today and I can’t go out as I have a cough.  I send a kiss to May-May and Ethel and Arcon for today.

19th – I found a toad yesterday and I can’t find it today.  Is Auntie Lottie’s cat getting on at all or not.  It thundered and rained very hard today, and Kathleen and Dorsey got very wet going to Evesham and Dorsey went to bed.  I had some boots one day and they didn’t fit me, and Dorsey was taking them back to Evesham, and he dropped them in the road, we can’t find them, Boo went to hunt for them.  I played croquet in the morning and I did win.  The poultry are getting on very well.  We have got a see-saw and sometimes Boo and Dorsey give me a see-saw on it.  There was a story about a raven in my lesson book.  How are you getting on May-May and Detty and Arcon.  I send you all a lot of kisses, and some to Auntie Lottie and Grannie and Uncle John.  With lots of love and hugs.

I remain your loving sister

Judy Betty
