My dear Mother
I am only going to write you a very short letter this week, because I am very busy and also I shall very likely see you on Saturday as Kath is going to arrange for me to meet you for lunch. I have had a very nice weekend at Aunt Fanny’s. I am afraid I am feeling very Mondayish now.
Auntie is writing to you herself in a day or two so she will tell you all the news. She seemed pretty well though she had been troubled rather with rheumatism lately. Fancy Charlie Hodson turning up again!
Kath had to go back last night about nine, but I managed to stay till this morning, had breakfast at 8 and caught a 9.51 from Addlestone. Please tell Ethel I am looking anxiously for her promised letter.
I had a long talk with Kath about work and various problems which she is going to tell you about before we meet on Saturday, I think. I told you, didn’t I, that Miss Grierson, is leaving this term. We shall miss her dreadfully and I shall be quite lost. In that respect I don’t want this term to end, but otherwise I am rather fed up with it and shall welcome the holidays three weeks next Friday.
We have had to put off our OG day till next term because of the cases of whooping-cough.
I expect you have had the rain by now, it has been very heavy this afternoon, and showery all the weekend.
Aunty Fanny’s is a nice house to stay in. I always appreciate soft carpets so much after school! Monica Harper was there on Saturday and went on the river with us, she is a nice little girl.
I must stop, work is very behind-hand despite my valiant efforts to get ahead all last week.
With much love your affectionate daughter
