My dear Mother.
Very many thanks for your letter. The mails are taking a month now instead of 3 weeks, but we are getting them every week now as usual only a bit late.
I am glad Paul is all right, but I suppose you are fussed about Ted now.
The tie arrived all right from Dreda, I am awfully pleased with it.
So cold this morning, I fancy the hot weather must be over!
Ben hoped to sail on the 18th, I fancy she & Ted must have run up against each ether in Karachi. I have a line from her from Lahore. She found it a bit hot there.
I have not heard when the doctor man is coming out, when he does arrive I don’t quite know what I am going to do. I rather fancy joining a man in Calcutta for a few months, but I doubt if I shall like it. I suppose something will turn up.
Yes you told me the bowl had arrived. I expect by this time you’ve heard Ted is going to Europe or somewhere, & I suppose you are having more fits, I can imagine how anxious everyone is about their relations & friends.
Where’s George? He must have gone, no one has said anything about him.
Must stop. Best love to all.
Yr loving son
