My dearest Wife,
Sunday morning brought a letter from Charlotte, which I enclose, also some picture post cards and a letter for George from May but she feeling uncertain about the Frisco route had posted several home letters and sheets of diary via Italy, I see the “Omagh“ was at Suez yesterday her mails ought to be delivered about next Monday, until which time we must be content to await May’s budget of news.
Ethel heard from Arthur this morning he said he had written to you at Eastbourne and Jack was going to write to you from Deal, I rather expect letters to-morrow morning from Kathleen and Cyril and if they turn up I will enclose them with this.
I had a p.c. from Aunt George this morning from Edinburgh, I think she was pleased as she speaks of “the welcome news that G. had so distinguished himself”. Ethel has heard from Norah who will I think like to come to us about 20th. Tell Polly although we shall be very pleased to see her in October, or any other time, yet I wish she could have seen the roses in full bloom this year for I think they will be particularly good this season.
I have spent most of Whit Monday in the garden, Ethel went to the Vicarage to meet Joyce Davis and Juliet went out for a walk and to tea with Roddie, she seems happy enough but often sends you kisses.
George has been rose spraying and doing his usual jobs with the poultry etc, I should think he will soon hear something as to when he may expect to begin his work.
Mrs Byrch has sent you a much more pleasing photo of herself than the last. Dilnot seems to think that Mr Byrch has made a very handsome profit on the sale of his property.
You write to May, Arthur & George this week, you should post to May via Frisco on Friday, someone will write from home also.
My love to all at Richmond and with much to yourself dear wife
I am ever
Your loving Husband
Juliet has just sent a message down by Ethel that she will write to you soon. She sends lot of love & kisses, the little puss should be asleep.
