15th Nov.


My dear Mother-

Thanks very much for your letter- Oh yes – I really had to get another uniform suit – as I only have two – one everyday & working & one for dinner & Sundays – & the former is getting so filthy – I must shift one better so to speak – It’s alright is’nt it – because I have’nt had a new one since last January was’nt it-

We have had some lovely weather too lately, such a relief-

Yesterday Mr Drew came over to lunch with me – and we had a good old talk together – I had’nt seen him for about two months – & not since he went on leave – Also today Nigel Lyon is with me and staying the night – such fun it has been hearing all about his weekend at Delaford and all – he did so enjoy himself-

Our theatrical show is definitely fixed for the 27th Nov – so we are getting more busy than ever over rehearsals, scenery etc-

Rather a good thing for Jim I should think this Portuguese Staff show – I suppose they will make him “Officier de liason”-

I must go & see Lyon again – & entertain him –

With my very best love to you all-

Your ever loving son
