My dear Father

I like the story of the dolls very much.  I read it every day, and the post bag.  This afternoon I am going to a café [?] and if it’s fine, also Auntie and Ethel and Christine.  It is very nice seeing the trains here.  Some of them are very fast ones and on the new line.  If you write to Ethel send a message to say how Scot is.  It is very nice going in the carriage with Auntie.  Last Thursday Audrey and her little brother and Iris and her baby brother came to tea.  Christine has got lots of nice dolls.  I am allowed to take them out in the garden.  I have had my top tooth while the other still remains.

They have “bumble puppy” in the garden, and I like playing it very much, Christine plays it with me.  How does George get on with the chickens by himself?  Has bunny got very fat?  The dogs here like me very much.  Thank Mother for washing Scot.  There is a dog in Weybidge like Scot, I often see him.  Our bed is a spring one, and very comfortable.  I have just begun my handkerchief for the Flower Show.  I am enjoying myself very much.

Kisses for Mother, George and yourself.

From Juliet
